Interviews, meetings and correspondence
The following list includes those people interviewed who were prepared for their names to be quoted. Whilst being extensive, this list does not include those many civil servants within the various offices of the local authorities and members of the many different parties which I visited. I am extremely grateful to all those named and unnamed for the assistance provided, and also to those people who discussed my research with me, provided many useful insights into Kurdish politics and governance, but who have chosen to remain anonymous. With each entry, I have included the commonly referred to name of the person, as it is not unusual for peshmerga in particular to have a nom de guerre. Their position at the time of interview is noted, along with any subsequent positions, and the place and date of the interview/meeting.
