Some of the groups campaigning for a just treatment of Iraq are listed below. For the most part each is quite autonomous and has its own distinct concerns and mandate. In addition to these groups, there is a list here of organisations that have passed resolutions opposing economic sanctions. Please note that this list does not include non-governmental organisations that have published information on Iraq but have a wider focus: such groups will be listed in the NGO section of our Information sources index. It also does not include Iraqi political, civil and minority rights groups, who are listed here.
This list is incomplete. Please let us know about groups that we have not added. Another list of groups working in or on Iraq can be found at 'Emergency Humanitarian Action for the People of Iraq: A List'.
