Information on Iraq
At the heart of the site are our listings of information about sanctions on Iraq, in the Information Sources section.
How to use the Information Sources section
Our most comprehensive list of documents and websites is organised by source (i.e. who wrote or published it) and split between several pages. Choose the broad category of source (a government, an NGO, etc) then scroll down the page or use the quick links at the top of the page to locate the particular organisation. There you'll find a list of all the documents in our listings produced by that organisation or individual.
For example, to find all information on sanctions from UNICEF, click on 'Listed by source' in the menu bar, then 'UN organs, agencies and commissions', then click 'Unicef' in the list of shortcuts at the top of the page.
If you are looking for information about a particular issue, we also have a thematic index. This will take you directly to a list of the key documents, reports and websites that relate to the theme of interest. The thematic index includes material that is not on the web in its listings. Examples of themes are: smart sanctions, the oil-for-food programme, the law of sanctions, US policy to Iraq.
The quick search box on the menu panel itself lets you choose between two areas to search in: the main CASI website (this includes CASI's publications, listings of information sources and any documents we host on our own site, but excludes our discussion list archive), and the information sources listings (this includes just the five or six pages on which comprise our comprehensive list of links and documents).
The other search links in the menu panel allow you to perform more complex types of search or to search the discussion list archive, which contains some 5000 postings on sanctions on Iraq from 1998 to the present day.
Some documents on the site are provided in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format. To view them you'll need the Acrobat Reader. In all likelihood your computer already has this software installed; if not, you can download it for free from Adobe.
