This article discusses a policy research project on possible future economic, governance and constitutional arrangements for Iraq that brought together a number of Iraqi and international practitioners and scholars at the Canadian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade in 2006, highlighting some conclusions eventually also reflected in a volume, Iraq: Preventing a New Generation of Conflict, edited by Markus E. Bouillon, David M. Malone and Ben Rowswell (London and Boulder CA: Lynne Rienner, 2007). It also discusses policy research sometimes incubated within and sometimes supported beyond Canada's foreign ministry (and other such institutions).
