Current Events from the Kurdish Regions

Kurdistan News

Ignored and oppressed for decades, Kurdistan news is finally being covered by international media. The Kurdish Project is partnering with established news outlets like Rudaw, and upcoming news outlets like NRT.TV and the Pasewan. Our goal is to provide an unbiased source of breaking news from the Kurdish regions covering topics from women’s rights to religious tolerance and democratic development in Kurdistan.

While the Syrian Kurds in Rojava are building up democratic cantons in Syria, Kurds in Iraqi Kurdistan are defending the front lines against the so-called Islamic State. Kurds in the Turkish region of Kurdistan are making strides towards democratic representation, and the Kurds in Iranian Kurdistan are also standing up for representation in the Iranian government. Let us know if you have breaking news, or if you represent a news outlet The Kurdish Project should work with!
