Le présent COI Focus dresse un état des lieux de la situation sécuritaire à Bagdad. Les recherches concernent plus particulièrement la période allant d’avril à fin octobre 2018 et ont été effectuées du 5 au 12 novembre 2018. Ce document remplace la version précédente du 26 mars 2018, dont il ne constitue toutefois qu’une mise à jour limitée. La situation sécuritaire dans la capitale irakienne est restée généralement stable et n’a pas été marquée par des événements de grande ampleur (à l’exception des élections législatives de mai 2018). Cette mise à jour se concentre dès lors sur les changements observés dans les indicateurs d’insécurité et dans la typologie de la violence à Bagdad au cours de la période couverte par le présent rapport.
