Growing Violence in Iranian Kurdistan: Causes and Consequences

27 November 2018

Houses of Parliament

Join the Centre for Kurdish Progress for this timely talk on growing violence in Iranian Kurdistan, in Room C, 1 Parliament Street on Tuesday, 27th November 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm.

The event will kindly be hosted and chaired by Sandy Martin MP, Labour MP for Ipswich and Chair of the APPG for Kurdish Regions (Iran).

Escalating tension between Iran and Iranian Kurdish parties has been borne out by increasing attacks in recent months. In September, Iranian missiles hit the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (Iran) (KDP-I), the most deadly attack in recent times.

In this public forum the Cetnre for Kurdish Progress invites two leading Iranian Kurdish politicians, Ms Golaleh Sharafkandi of the KDP-I and Mr Reza Kaabi of the Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan (Komala) to discuss the causes and potentialy consequences of the violence playing out in Iranian Kurdistan.

Mr Reza Kaabi joined Komala in 1979 and In 1995 he became a member of the Komala Central Committee. Mr Kaabbi previously acted as Chief Executive and Editor of Komala media and Komala publications and Director General of Komala TV and Radio as well. Currently he is Secretary of the Executive Board and the Deputy Secretary General of Komala.

Ms Golaleh Sharafkandi is a member of the Central Committee of the KDP-I and works in the international relations office of the party. Ms Sharafkandi is also a representative of Kurdistan Democratic Women Union (KDP-Iran), and has been based in Stockholm Sweden since December 2001.
