Özet

Developing humanitarianism and humanitarian action has been influenced with the Post-Cold War as Human security increased its role in international policies, and it has influenced humanitarian action directly. Hence, women issue is still an important field in new humanitarianism besides needs a wider feminist approach. Iraqi Women are living in a state system that implements patriarchal policies and confronting brutal violence after 10th year of the American intervention. This paper will base on field study during 3 November - 12 November 2012 in Baghdad and Erbil, which is relying on elite interviews with several local NGO's in both two cities. Intentions of this research are to analyse Iraq NGO's look to women representation, murders and all problems that women face after two foreign military interventions, and several civil conflicts. How the situation of women in Iraq is perceived by local and international NGO's? How UN and other inter-state mechanism are providing assistance or monitoring them to work? These questions will be answered in a critical - feminist approach in international security studies.
