Muqtada al-Sadr and the Mahdi Army in Iraq

by Cronin, Emily Kathleen

Abstract

This paper explores the origins of Muqtada al-Sadr's Shia political and religious movement in post-invasion Iraq. Social movement theory is used to analyze the events leading up to 2003 starting with the creation of the Da'wa political party in 1957. The study ends in early 2012 with a discussion of the future of Shia in Iraq and the influence of Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army.
