The Nahrein Network fosters the sustainable development of antiquity, cultural heritage and the humanities in Iraq and its neighbours. We support interdisciplinary research to enable universities, museums, and community groups to better serve local, post-conflict needs.
The Network is based at University College London, Sulaimani Polytechnic University, Al-Qadisiyah University, and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. It also has many international partners. We are funded for four years, 2017-21, by the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Global Challenges Research Fund Network Plus scheme.
The next 10 years
We are thrilled to announce that, thanks to generous new funding, the Nahrein Network is able to continue its mission until 2031. Read about our plans for this next phase of work, which will begin later in 2021.
