This report examines the legal and societal hostility towards religious minorities in Iraq with regard to anti-conversion laws and the violence shown towards individuals and their property. To comply with obligations under international law, Iraq must fully respect and promote the right to freedom of religion or belief within its borders and provide greater protection for Christian and other minorities.
