My ambition is rather to examine the constitution in order to see which kind of theory of citizenship it is inspired from and how will it affect the situation of the Iraqi women.

The result of the analysis showed that communitarianism is the one. A theory based on a strong community, where they emphasize the belonging to it. But by stressing the importance of the community the theory is risking of "freezing" the women in the group. (Less)
