Kurdipedia is a project that aims to collect all information related to Kurdistan and the Kurdish nation, hoping to one day become the largest Kurdish platform where people can easily find out who is who, where is where, and what is what.
Kurdipedia was created in 2008 by Hawreh Bakhawan.
Kurdipedia is a compound name, consiting of two words: Kurd + pedia, from the suffix of the original Greek word (encyclopedia), which means to know general information. The word Kurdipedia is derived from the Greek word to mean (Knowing Kurdistan) or to mean (Giving information about Kurd and Kurdistan). This word was first derived by the creator of the website.

- The records that Kurdipedia's collaborators find on the Internet websites are concentrated in one of the Kurdipedia categories, and sometimes attempts are made to change the misspellings and record them correctly, without modifying the content of the articles. Any article taken from any website will be registered in the source list.
- Articles sent to us by Kurdipedia guests through the registration form. Any article received by any guest, the guest’s name will be used the source of that article. Please let us know if you do not want to be included in Kurdipedia's list of sources.

Every entry in Kurdipedia is related to Kurdistan and Kurds in some way. No articles will be entered outside these topics. From this perspective, you sometimes see the life and agenda of a non-Kurdish person, who is either a Kurdish scholar and has a discussion about Kurds or Kurdistan, or is related to a Kurdish event.
