In Iraq, there is growing dissatisfaction among both Yazidi citizens and members of other minority nationalities with recruitment procedures and application procedures for projects or grants, which require the completion of a special questionnaire requiring religious, sectarian and ethnic affiliation, preventing them from obtaining employment and creating problems of discrimination.

Yazidi civic activist Samia Shankali recounted her experience of losing her job for not indicating her nationality on the application form, despite her high qualifications. These demands raise questions about fairness and equality of opportunity for all citizens.

Requirements to indicate religious, sectarian and ethnic affiliation for employment cause public resentment. Filling out forms indicating religious affiliation is becoming the norm even when applying for public office. Many believe that such requirements create unequal employment conditions and violate the basic rights of citizens.

This provokes public debate and raises questions about the need to change laws and recruitment procedures to ensure equality and fairness for all Iraqi citizens.
