ABSTRACT
After 2005 many Iraqi families sought refuge in Egypt, fleeing the repercussions of the US-led war on Iraq, including the spread of sectarian violence. In comparison with Iraqis in other Arab states, those in Egypt have received little attention. Using refugee narratives, this article aims to shed light on the journeys of some Iraqi families to Egypt. It also discusses the status of Iraqis in the context of the broader refugee regime operating in Egypt and the complex relations between Iraqis and Egyptians today.
