To raise the profile of the Republic of Iraq and the various peoples that make up the population of the country, campaign for appropriate policy change and act as a focal point for debate and the exchange of ideas, views and information. The APPG’s ambition is to be at the centre of political thinking and policy development on the Republic of Iraq.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
