Security features of Iraqi immigration into the Czech Republic

Michael MURAD

This paper is devoted to analyzing the nature of immigration from Iraq to the Czech Republic. Its primary aim is to identify main security threats connected with the immigration from Iraq and consequential analysis of risks that Iraqis can represent for the Czech Republic. The very small and quite well integrated and specific minority of Iraqis living in the Czech Republic is also analysed in detail in this essay. The main threat that can be posed by Iraqi immigration into the Czech Republic is a threat to the national security based on their criminal activities. Probably the most publicly discussed threat connected with the so-called Muslim immigration into Europe – terrorism, is not so topical in the Czech Republic at this moment.
