Ahmed Muffak


Ahmed Muffak is a human rights defender who promotes political and economic rights in Iraq. He has organised several workshops designed to raise awareness of these issues among the population. He was part of the movement in 2016 that called for economic and social reforms in Iraq.


Human rights defenders in Iraq have been subjected to attack, harassment, arbitrary arrest and detention without trial. Despite the fact that Iraq became a party to the Convention Against Torture in July 2011, torture and ill-treatment in camps and detention centres remains widespread, including against imprisoned human rights defenders and democracy activists.
