As Pope Francis makes the first ever papal visit to Iraq, we look at his unofficial but important role as a diplomat. What does a papal visit look like? Who decides where he goes? How far does the Pope’s soft power reach? And what will Francis’s visit mean for Iraq? Andrew Mueller is joined by Samya Kullab, Joshua McElwee and Neal Ascherson.
