Ahmed Abdel Fattah Ibrahim

Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedoms (ECRF)

Ahmed Abdel Fattah Ibrahim is a human rights defender and board member of the Egyptian Commission for Rights and Freedoms (ECRF). He principally carries out his activities in Upper Egypt, where he has coordinated several workshops and trainings on a variety of human rights issues. He works to promote health care rights and the rights of persons with disabilities, and he actively seeks protections for the rights of the Nubian ethnic minority group in Egypt.


A significant crackdown on civil society in Egypt has been taking place since 2014. HRDs face an extremely challenging situation due to restrictions imposed on civil society and peaceful public gatherings and protests, travel bans, the arrest and sentencing of HRDs, bloggers, journalists and protesters, as well as an ongoing smear campaign against human rights groups.
