The Iraq Memory Foundation is a private nonprofit organization for documentation of Iraqi history under the Ba'th party regime.
It was founded by Kanan Makiya in 1992 as the Iraq Research and Documentation Project (IRDP) at Harvard University's Center
for Middle Eastern Studies. Makiya had just returned from a November 1991 trip to northern Iraq, where he viewed the archive
of documents of the Hiظb al-Ba'th al-'Arabī al-Ishtirākī (Ba'th Arab Socialist Party of Iraq) that had been seized by Iraqi
rebels. Now president of the Iraq Memory Foundation, Makiya is the Sylvia Hassenfeld Professor of Modern Middle East Studies
at Brandeis University. He has written many books, including Republic of Fear: The Politics of Modern Iraq (1989).
