In 2019 RASHID International examined public spaces in Iraq and their role in the promotion and protection of cultural rights. The report reiterates a key definition of ‘public space’ and analyzes public spaces in connection with their political role, their accessibility to women, families and disabled persons, cultural facilities as public spaces, as well as social media and the wider internet, the ‘virtual public space’. Submitted to the UN Special Rapporteur in the field of cultural rights, it formed part of a study to inform the UN General Assembly in autumn 2019. This report is a publication of the non-profit organization RASHID International e.V. We are a charitable organization registered in the Federal Republic of Germany and are in special consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations since 2019.
