One of our most interesting tasks is the organization of events of different kinds. The KRG Representation in Austria is trying to foster dialogue between the Kurdistan Region and Austria on the level of politics, economics, academics as well as civil society.

In this context, the KRG Representation in Austria in the past five years has organized different events such as panel discussions, lectures or film screenings. However, we did not only organize, but also participated in external events, such as the UN Bazar or fairs, in order to represent the Kurdistan Region’s rich culture and history.
