Professor Dr. Khalifa Ibrahim Odeh headed a team of graduate students at the Faculty of Law and Political Science in a new experiment by replacing the written examination with the completion of an applied study entitled "Legal Protection for Displaced Persons". The students of postgraduate studies, Master of Public Law / Human Rights and Public Freedoms, in cooperation with Diyala Police Department - Media and Relations Department, and Diyala Human Rights Organization, organized a scientific seminar in which the students (Star Kazim Jawad) and (Iman Hamoud Sulaiman) explained Homelessness and the most important reasons that lead to this phenomenon and then its effects on society. Homelessness has been defined as a pattern of non-social behavior patterns whose practice poses a threat to the community, with reference to the legal protections of this group of people and ways of dealing with them under Iraqi legislation.
