Sharon Kardia: Genomics in the Health & Retirement Study
This article analyzes the results of a survey of Iraqi citizens’ attitudes toward governance and democracy. The survey, conducted in November and December 2004, gives particular attention to: 1) attitudes toward democracy; 2) attitudes about the political role of religion; 3) the relationship between political attitudes and views about the rights and status of women; and 4) the degree to which political attitudes differ among Iraq’s ethno-religious communities and are influenced by sectarianism.
Country of focus: Iraq.
