The main objective of this thesis is to critically analyse the official Iraqi Kurdish National Discourse (KND) constructed by the two main Kurdish parties the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) and the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK) in the struggle for the future status of Kirkuk. By deploying a post structuralist account of political discourse theory, as developed by Laclau and Mouffe, this thesis will try to answer three key questions; how was the official Kurdish National Discourse for Kirkuk discursively constructed by the main ruling parties?
