I have dealt with in this research a study (the attitude of people Andalusia on the spread of the Hanafi doctrine - a historical study), which is considered one of the most important topics that solves some Islamic doctrines problems such as ; its emergence, and the reasons for their spread in some Islamic cities while it is declining in other cities.
The study of this topic is different from previous studies, which dealt with Islamic doctrines of thought in the land of Andalusia such as a jurisprudential study, the definition of its origins, its approach, and its jurisprudential opinions.
The Hanafi doctrine is considered one of the first Islamic doctrines, and the most widespread in the Islamic countries like of the other cities, which opened their doors to this doctrine until it is spread and settled in it, and became the controlling  to  all aspects of life in these cities.
Although the country of Andalusia was at the beginning of its era, it was affected by the Islamic East in various aspects, but it did not open its doors to this doctrine.
I showed in this research the reasons for the non-proliferation of the Hanafi doctrine of thought in the country of Andalusia, which were political, scientific, social and geographical reasons.

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 239-262

Oriental travelers played a prominent role in dealing with oriental studies from its early stages through the collection of Islamic manuscripts, their transmission to the West, their preservation and indexing. The orientalists roamed the Islamic lands and bought Islamic manuscripts at the lowest prices. The orientalist travelers also carried out personal authorship, the products of which were going to the colonial governments, with the intrusion and discrediting of their books and their export to the East. In addition, these travelers dealt with the political, economic and social conditions of Islamic countries. Some link between Orientalism and colonialism, as the first is considered an introduction to the second. The first was conducting a cultural survey of Arab and Muslim countries, and colonialism advances when the picture of the colonized countries is complete.

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 338-361

Algeria represented a political and economic importance for the European countries in the sevententh and the eighteenthcenturies and they were an attraction factor for many categories of people to live in. So the Algerian society was a blend of many races and sects and Jews were one of these sects that lived in Algeria and they enjoyed their religious, social and economic rights. Jews could, gradually, expand their economic activity in an apparant manner, not on the domestic level only, but on the foreign level as well, that they controled the economy of Algeria and dominated its internal and external trade due to their strong ties with other states that enabled them from establishing transactions with European countries in general and with France in particular that led, later on, to the accumulation of France debts to Algeria and that was the reason that resulted in occupying Algeria by France in 1830 A.D.

After the establishment of the Organization of the African Unity in 1963 , One of its main goals and principles was the decolonization of all forms and working to grant the African states their full independence. Also, this organization took care to support the African states that suffer from racial discrimination.

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 380-401

Infiltration is one of the influential  methods that a state follows to achieve the goals of its personal policy to demonstrate its powers, maintain a balance with other countries, and secure the requirements of its national security as well as economic reasons that pave the way for obtaining certain benefits. This method was applied to US-Chinese relations during the research period.
    This research aims to shed light, albeit in a nutshell, on the early stages of the American infiltration into China. The study period extends from 1791 to 1895, as the first date represents the first official attempts of that infiltration, especially after the American Congress issued a decision to reduce customs duties by 10% on imported goods from China without exception. ; While the second historiography represented the role of American diplomacy in mediating the end of the Japanese-Chinese war in 1895.                               
    The research is divided into two main axes. The first deals with the beginnings of the American infiltration into China until 1842, while the second axis deals with strengthening the American influence in China (1842-1895) by concluding a number of treaties with the Chinese government, those treaties that consolidated American infiltration in East Asia. In general, and China in particular.

Singularity of god baal

Marwan Najah Mahdi AL_Balam

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 450-474

In this study, I dealt with the first beginnings of the god Baal and how he was mythically ascended to the god El, and also detailed in the research the attempt of the god El to deter the god Baal in order not to be unique in the universe, so he wanted his son Yam and then died in order to reduce him
It also reviewed the position of his wife Anan, who was the second factor in fertility and how she stood with her husband in times of distress and did not abandon him, although she was stronger than him as appears in the text of the research, but all credit is attributed to him
Finally, Baal became the chief deity and singular from the rest, especially since the two strongest of the two are the ancient god El and the god Mut, whom no one could stand in front of.

Women and Peace in Iraq Opportunities, Challenges and Prospects for A Better Future

Zeynep N. Kaya; Ilham Makki Hammadi

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 475-529

We talked to 91 women (and some men) activists, civil society representatives, journalists, legal experts and academics in Baghdad, Basra, Erbil, Kirkuk, Najaf and Nineveh. We listened to what they had to say about peace and justice, existing challenges to achieving these, and how the challenges can and should be overcome. We adopted a lens that focuses on women and gender and through this lens we looked at the processes of formal and informal peacebuilding and transitional justice.
As expected, the research showed that Iraqi activists have valuable insights to offer when it comes to issues of peace and justice in Iraq. It also showed that Iraqi peace activists work hard, indeed harder than the government, and make real change and impact on the ground. However, despite the impressiveness and value of this work, it remains small-scale and unnoticed as it is surrounded by a large web of ‘continuum of violence’,[i] legal and institutional obstacles, long-term gendered structural context, social gender norms and a political establishment that adheres to a conservative and patriarchal interpretation of religious and tribal norms. The obstacles and limitations to women’s participation in peacebuilding are immense and manifold, but these have not stopped Iraqi women in the past and will not stop them today or in the future either.
Several important insights and lessons emerged from our conversations. It is impossible to do justice to all that rich and incredible knowledge, experience, and wisdom. However, here is an attempt to summarise the most important messages to emerge out of these:
First, this research showed that there is a rich plethora of definitions of peace in Iraq. Peace activities are defined in a comprehensive way by women and men in Iraq, which goes well beyond the narrow, formal conceptions of peace and justice..
Second, Iraqi activists define and understand peace and its relationship to justice in different ways and these depend on the line of work they pursue, the circumstances of the province, and the specific community, group or people and issue under discussion. Women peace activists and feminists call for a proper implementation of CEDAW and other international human rights principles that affect women and girls. However, this does not mean that they endorse the political agendas pursued by foreign states. Women peace and rights activities are stuck in a complicated place defined by the intersection of foreign funding and international/regional politics and this creates significant potential risks for them.
Third, so much existing peace work is going unnoticed in Iraq in which women and men of all ages, but especially the young, are working relentlessly. Despite difficult circumstances, these individuals and groups carry out impressive voluntary work often in collaboration with local civil society organisations.
Fourth, formal peacebuilding mechanisms, on the other hand, such as the Committee for Coexistence and Community Peace, had less positive attributes compared to their informal counterparts. Some of the local peace committees have carried out important work and have been more inclusive than the other formal mechanisms such as the Martyrs Foundation. Still, formal mechanisms are less inclusive and informal mechanisms, and only a small number of women take part in them.
Fifth, opinion is divided about the Iraqi National Plan regarding resolution 1325, which was seen by respondents as another form of formal peacebuilding. The Plan is considered to be a huge achievement in bringing the issue of women’s participation in peace processes to the political agenda. However, the Plan has not made a real impact and has not changed the status of women’s participation in formal peacebuilding and negotiations in Iraq. Some of the respondents, including women civil society representatives, had not even heard of the Plan while others had heard of it in name only but not witnessed any of its work. Most of the work and discussion in relation to INAP takes place in Baghdad and Erbil. However, the Plan mostly remains unimplemented due to a lack of political will and a limited budget to fund its activities.
Sixth, there is huge discrepancy between existing transitional justice mechanisms used by the Iraqi government and what respondents called ‘real justice’, as well as legal discrimination against women, a lack of legal protection for women, and the lack of punishment for perpetrators of violence against women. Respondents provided a much wider scope of issues and activities in relation to peace and transitional justice, issues that go beyond the formal justice procedures offered by the government.
Seventh, customary rules have a significant impact on women’s participation in peacebuilding by limiting women’s participation in public life

Al-Anbar University Journal For Humanities, 2022, Volume 2022, Issue 2, Pages 530-551

Today the world goes through many challenges and difficulties which can only be addressed by science and knowledge, so the educational institution- which consists of a group of stages beginning with the pre-school stage through the primary and secondary stages and ending with the university stage represented by higher education institutions- shares the providing of the individual with knowledge which enables him/her address the requirements of life and this process entails a number of elements such as the existence of a student, a schoolteacher, a teacher, a professor and a scientific material whether theoretical or practical. The scientific institution, with its two types: the educational and the higher education, may face common challenges whether social, economic, political and cultural. Hence our research emerges trying to shed light on these challenges to find solutions for them via recommendations which the researchers have come up with in this research. in this research, the two researchers have adopted the analytical descriptive approach to achieve the goals of the research which has come up with a number of results the most prominent of which are the insufficient scientific buildings, the limited proficiency of the teaching staff together with the increase in failure rates among students in the education sector and the higher education in addition to that the curricula are old and do not fit the scientific and technological advances in schools and universities namely in the humanitarian studies.
