The European Union Advisory Mission in Iraq (EUAM Iraq) was launched in October 2017 in response to a request by the Iraqi government for advice on how to undertake civilian security sector reform (SSR). The Mission had an initial mandate of one year (till 17 October 2018), which based on an assessment of Iraqi needs and progress made has been extended until April 2020. This combined needs/progress assessment also resulted in a substantial growth of the Mission, almost doubling its authorised personnel number from 50 to 95.
