This report is based on data obtained from extensive interviews and focus group discussions  with representatives from a broad cross-section of the Iraqi population. Taking place months after the fall of Baghdad but before the capture of Saddam Hussein and the establishment of the Iraqi Special Tribunal, this survey provided many participants with the first opportunity to offer their opinions on these critical issues. This study reveals a shared national experience of widespread exposure to human rights abuses. This report was produced in partnership with the International Center for Transitional Justice.
