Abstract:   (742 Views)
In the contemporary Middle East, the Kurdish problem, as the largest stateless people, has consistently had the potential to challenge regional security. This article tries to examine the dimensions of the subject from the perspective of a constructivist approach and relying on material and semantic elements. The question that the researcher faces in this research is what is the ratio of the possibilities and limitations of the separatism of the Iraqi Kurdistan region and which one weighs more in the continuation of this path of identity seeking? The author assumes in this study that the increase and expansion of ethnic demands related to the Kurdish issue in Iraq are not in line with the geopolitical and security coordinates of both Iraq and the actors involved in the region, nor was it accompanied by serious and genuine support from trans-regional actors. Finally, by examining the possible scenarios related to the issue of Iraqi Kurdish independence, it has been concluded that the Kurdish crisis will continue in the future, and no clear and insecure solution has been found by the actors involved.
