Two heavyweights will face off Friday on the Missouri State University campus – not in a boxing ring, but in a classroom. They will debate the future of an ethnic group based over 6,000 miles away.

The debate is over the future of the Kurdish people, who have pushed for their independence for generations.   Two experts will debate on how the main disputes can be resolved.

Feisal al-Istrabadi is Iraq’s former ambassador to the United Nations and one of the principal legal drafters of the Iraqi interim constitution.
