The project is a presents the cause for security and political instability and its effects in the country of republic Iraq. The project also analysis the role and support of neighboring countries and international community in Iraq to attain stability. Iraq’s volatile security situation and the central government’s failure to resolve ethnic and religious tensions are dividing the country into three de facto regions: The autonomous Kurdistan Region in the north, a turbulent “Sunni triangle” in the middle and a Shiite center and south. Every development on the political front is followed by security incidents. The causes of insecurity have been identified by nearly all sides, but by the look of things no party in Iraq is seriously interested in fixing security. Everyone notes that the unstable security situation is caused by: the shaky political process; lack of qualified security personnel at the head of security agencies; and the dictatorial tendencies. The main problem is the absence of a leader who can lead the process in the right direction and include all parties. To do this, the country needs a visionary leader who has experienced diversity, and who truly believes in it to manage differences and turn them into strengths. Security and political stability are linked. Without fixing one, there is no fixing the other. The study analyses the neighbor countries and US role in attaining political stability in Iraq.
