    Abstract IOM Iraq is delivering programming across Iraq aimed at reducing local sources of violence and supporting economic recovery. These programmes target communities that experienced a high rate of mobilization during the war with ISIL and/or are recovering from the after-effects of occupation by ISIL and the subsequent military campaign to dislodge the group. This report is based on data collected from February 2022 to March 2022 from a total of 807 respondents across the provinces of Basra and Tal Afar, chosen as sites for the MEAC pilot in Iraq due to their high rates of mobilization and differing experiences during the war with ISIL. The report presents data about community experiences pre-, during, and post-war, and examines what community experiences, perceptions, and preferences mean for reintegration prospects in Basra and Tal Afar. This data may be useful to UN and NGO partners working in the region to bolster their early recovery programming, as well as efforts to support the communities who receive a high number of ex-combatants or persons perceived to be associated with armed groups. The report ends with an examination of key policy and programmatic implications of these findings.
