The Forum of Federations will be sending a small delegation of Canadians to Iraq later this month to assist with the writing of a new constitution. Celine Auclair, the Forum's vice-president told Embassy on June 13: "We have been approached by an American NGO, the National Democratic Institute, to support the UNAMI effort in drafting the new Iraqi constitution. What they are looking for is expertise on federalism, because a federal regime will probably be adopted as the new political structure for Iraq."
