Dear Madam, Sir,

Mr Abdelaziz Abid of UNESCO kindly passed on your details re. the following
request made to him earlier. In advance, please accept my apologies for the
direct nature of my request.

The reason for approaching you is that I would likt to make contact with one
or more academic colleagues from Iraq, i.e. international lawyers who
perform research at one of the academic institutions in Iraq. I would like
to see whether I can offer assistance on an individual basis with respect to
their work as a scholar, as I imagine that these days work must be
incredibly hard or even impossible in circumstances like that. As regards my
own background, I am an academic working as a research associate at Utrecht
University Law School, Department of Public International Law. This is the
reason that I have access to a range of resources, both digitally and hard
copy, and expertise.

In short, I am looking for one or more research associates, possibly in the
PhD phase in the field of public international law, working in Iraq. My
assistance could take various forms, including sending articles,
reviewing/commenting on work, editorial/quality assistance or other
assistance mutually agreed on. In this respect, it would be convenient -
though not pertinent - if the designated person(s) has/have access to

I would of course be interested to hear about the activities of your
organization. Should you require additional information from my side, please
let me know and I am happy to supply it.

I would be extremely grateful for any assistance from your side. Thank you
very much in advance and I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest
possible convenience.

Yours sincerely,
Judith Fischer,
Research Associate
