The Kurdistan region of Iraq is facing an economic and humanitarian crisis as a result of the influx of Syrian refugees which began in 2012 and internally displaced persons (IDPs) in 2014. The region's population increased by 28 percent over a short period, placing strains on the local economy, host community, and access to public services. This book provides national and regional policy makers with a technical assessment of the impact and stabilization costs needed for 2015 associated with the influx of refugees and IDPs. The stabilization cost for 2015 is estimated at US$1.4 billion in additional spending above and beyond the region's budget. This estimate could significantly increase should the crisis persist longer.

Kurds are the largest ethnic group in the world without a state. Spread across four Middle Eastern countries: Syria, Iraq, Iran, and Turkey, Kurds been fighting for independence and international recognition for decades. The conflicts in Iraq and Syria have given them new opportunities to achieve their goals - by fighting back against Islamic State forces, and setting up autonomous regions. The Kurds have been trying to establish an independent state since the end of World War I - but the countries where they live, particularly Iraq and Turkey, have often resorted to brutal measures to suppress the Kurds' ethnic identity. But times are changing in the Middle East.

Kara Ben Nemsi und sein Diener Hadschi Halef Omar reisen durch Kurdistan (Nord-Irak) im Jahre 1882, unter anderem mit dem Ziel, den entführten Sohn eines befreundeten arabischen Scheichs dort zu befreien. Und ich muss sagen, es wird wirklich wild. Gleich am Anfang steht der Überfall der Türken auf die Kurden an, die der erste Band vorbereitet hatte. Kara Ben Nemsi hilft den Jedidis, einer friedlichen christlichen Sekte, die von den Moslems "Teufelsanbeter" genannt werden. Doch auch unter der nahezu unübersehbaren Zahl kurdischer Stämme gibt es Feindschaften und vor allen Dingen viel Blutrache. Kara Ben Nemsi, der "Sohn der Deutschen", versucht mit Geschick und gelegentlichen Heldentaten das Schlimmste zu verhindern und Frieden zu stiften…

Joanna al-Askari nasce a Baghdad da padre iracheno e madre curda e cresce sotto il brutale regime baathista. Fin da piccola coltiva un sogno: trasferirsi presso la nonna materna, tra le valli pennellate d'oro della regione del Kurdistan. È là che ogni estate trascorre le vacanze, ed è là che il suo cuore viene conquistato per sempre dai racconti sui coraggiosi peshmerga, i combattenti curdi per la libertà. Così, quando all'età di quindici anni conosce l'affascinante Sarbast, militante del PUK, l'Unione Patriottica del Kurdistan, Joanna capisce quale sarà il proprio destino: infrangerà la legge e si unirà al suo innamorato nella lotta per i diritti del popolo curdo.
