The war against ISIS displaced almost 15% of Iraq’s population. By September 2018, 4 million Iraqis had returned home – but not the people of Sinjar, including many of the country’s Yazidi religious minority. Their return and reconciliation with one another – through justice, accountability, and the protection of land rights – were vital to maintaining the distinct nature of this multi-ethnic, multi-sectarian district.
