HSS 2019: Summary findings from Kirkuk, Iraq
In April 2019, PAX and its local partner, the Iraqi Al-Amal Association conducted a Human Security Survey across Kirkuk governorate about the experiences of civilian populations with issues of insecurity and conflict.
The HSS is developed by PAX's Protection of Civilians team and includes a series of complementary activities, including population-based research, community engagement, and advocacy. The survey in Kirkuk took place over 3 weeks in April 2019. A total of 15 enumerators completed 613 interviews (52% female respondents and 48% male respondents) across all 4 districts in the governorate, accessing Hawija district for the first time since the HSS started in 2017.
