Iraq is a Middle Eastern country with especial conditions. As a multi-cultural society and post war country, administration of Land Tenure security (LTS) in Iraq has suffered a vital impact under influence of the state insecurity and inter-communal violence leading it to lack of institutional planning. The main aim of this article is motivated from this fact to explore the effectiveness and the sustainable institutional aspects of the LTS administration as the key principal mechanism in the Iraqi Land Authorities (ILAs). To achieve this aim, the article looks into insights at ILAs organisational levels through which LTS in the Iraqi national strategy can be sought. This article also describes the Qualitative method of data collection and its analyses. The exploration, which involved semi-structured interviews in 5 organisations involved in 16 samples in ILAs at both national and local levels, are discussed together and interpreted. The results emphasised the need to promptly develop the specific elements which are lacking in LTS administration and to improve the ones which were ineffective.
