Ibrahim Ebrat

Afghan Civil Society Joint Working Group

Ibrahim Ebrat was a prominent human rights defender and the coordinator of the Afghan Civil Society Joint Working Group in Zabul province of Afganistan. In this capacity he responded to cases of human rights violations, threats against human rights defenders, and coordinated advocacy response and support for those affected. He was also engaged in education for girls, and livelihood programs for vulnerable groups in the province.


The continuing lack of security and instability in Afghanistan impacts negatively on the ability of human rights defenders (HRDs) to carry out their work. They are subjected to threats, intimidation, harassment, surveillance, arbitrary detention, forced disappearances and extrajudicial killings.
