Abstract

Following the cold war and the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the term "fragile states" has gained increasing prominence in security debates and the international community turned his attention to the hows of engagement in such countries.These security concerns originate from several factors: emphasis on establishing peace and security and this growing recognition that development and security are interrelated and the stability of state plays an influential role in its development.The term "fragile state" refers to the weak states which are vulnerable to internal and external threats and have a poor government incapable of managing domestic affairs and foreign policy and even itself can be regarded as a threat to the security of state. The current study aims to investigate the effects of Iraq's fragile state on the security threats to the women of this country using indexes of "state fragility" and "human security". Many thinkers believe that the crisis and civil war in Iraq after 2003 are caused by failure in nation-state building process and weakness of Iraqi government in the maintenance of societal order and unity.The fragility of state in Iraq, during these years has crucially affected the human security specially security of women. This thesis seeks to clarify the role of fragile state of Iraq in exacerbating the crisis giving rise to serious threats to the security of women”
