Abstract: The writer concerned himself with the inherent links between the dramatic changes unleashed in 2003 in the internal socio-political context in Iraq, with the lack of reconciliation and stability, which intensified after the adoption of the Iraqi constitution in 2005. This paper focusing on the US-sponsored state-building in Iraq, seeks to make a contribution to the scholarly and public understanding of the key interconnecting variables that run through much of the ‘rich’ tapestry of the obstacles facing the remaking of the national Iraqi constitution, in real-life situations. The aim is to shed more light on the conventional/received wisdom and contemporary political analyses in Iraq itself. Relevant information was drawn from the personal experience and observations of the writer, from direct contact and engagement with the people in Iraq during summer 2013 in a field study that sought to capture in more detail local perceptions and insights. The publications cited include available magazines, newspapers, journal articles and monographs as well as government documents.
