Raed Jarrar is an Iraqi political analyst and consultant to AFSC’s Iraq 
Program currently based in Washington, D.C. After the U.S.-led invasion, 
Jarrar became the country director for CIVIC Worldwide, the only 
door-to-door casualty survey group in post-war Iraq. He then established 
Emaar, (meaning “reconstruction” in Arabic), a grassroots organization 
that provided humanitarian and political aid to Iraqi internally 
displaced persons (IDPs). Emaar delivered medicine and food as well as 
helped initiate micro-enterprise projects for IDPs. Additionally, Emaar 
engaged in political advocacy on behalf of displaced populations.
