In Search of Safety

Published 20. Jul 2016
This report seeks to ensure adequate assistance ahead of the anticipated military operations in Mosul, based on experiences from Fallujah and Anbar in May and June 2016.

The crisis in Fallujah (and Anbar more broadly) represents a test case for the Iraqi government and the international community; together they need to implement preparedness measures to reduce the protection challenges that civilians are facing, guide them towards safety, and ensure adequate assistance – both on their journey and in displacement – ahead of anticipated military operations in Mosul.
