|Keynote Speech Summary|
I would like to welcome all the conference participants to the 4th International Scientific Conference of Hawler Medical University, which is held under the theme of ‘Towards Scientific Identification of Mass Graves and Genocide in Kurdistan Region’.
Hawler Medical University always works on addressing the issues related to the health and wellbeing of the community and developing the medical education in Kurdistan and Iraq as a whole. Every year, we carry out different scientific activities to address these issues. In the previous conferences of Hawler Medical University, we tried to address important topics such as directing scientific research to address the community needs and promoting the medical education in Kurdistan. In the current 4th International Scientific Conference of Hawler Medical University, we discuss the important issues of mass graves and genocide.
During the last few decades, Kurdistan Region faced many ethnic cleansing and mass attacks that have results in killing hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, demolition of thousands of villages and forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of people. Chemical weapon bombardment of different areas including Halabja and the ill-reputed Anfal operations are examples of these non-human attacks and tragedies. Unfortunately, all these events and their consequences are not adequately covered in the literature, and limited research has addressed them. All these operations in addition to the recent attack of ISIS on civilians and mass killings have produced hundreds of mass graves throughout Kurdistan and Iraq.
Our experience with identification and exploring mass graves is very recent, and we need to do such important and sensitive work in a sound scientific method. Therefore, we ought to bring experts from throughout Iraq and from abroad together in this conference to present their experiences and discuss the best ways and method for the scientific identification of mass graves and proper documentation of genocide in Kurdistan region. These efforts can help in getting international recognition of these genocide acts and will assist in preventing such aggression and non-human behavior against the human being and our nation in particular in the future.

President of Hawler Medical University
