Dear Diarmuid, You ask for contacts to link up for College Twinning, if I understand you correctly. One such contact who comes to mind isCASI member in Baghdad, Ghazwan Al-Mukhtar. He appears very knowledgable, seems to have strong feelings for his country, yet Ghazwan is not a mindless sheep - he seems capable of presenting a case honestly & with persuasiveness. Others may have other suggestions - good luck with your project!
