This success is puzzling, when considered alongside the most prominent theory of state formation, which argues that it is war that makes states. War does not explain the Kurdish state-making process. Rather, it has been a major setback for the Iraqi Kurds after This suggests an alternative theory of state formation, which argues that social coalitions of key elites can account for successful state-building.
