Human rights in Iraq remain fragile, as the country continues to emerge from decades of dictatorship, war and violence.
While the successive governments that have led the country since 2003 have taken measures aimed at improving the protection of their citizens, progress is still very slow due to the challenges facing the country.
The ongoing and protracted violence in Iraq continues to take a heavy toll on civilians and civilian infrastructure, subjecting them to senseless loss of life and injury. Violence also has a negative impact on economic development, and this in turn has a detrimental effect on other economic and social rights of citizens in Iraq.
