Hadi Ghaemi is the director of International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran[1], a project of the Dutch Foundation for Human Security in the Middle East. (The domain name information for the foundation shows that it is registered by the Nederlands Helsinki Committee and Jan ter Laak.[2]) In 2008, together with a group of international human rights activists, he founded the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran[3], which has become one of the leading groups reporting and documenting human rights violations in Iran and building international coalitions in defense of Iranian human rights defenders. Aaron Rhodes is another executive of the campaign.[4]

In 2004, Ghaemi joined Human Rights Watch as the Iran and United Arab Emirates researcher in the Middle East and North Africa division.[5] His work at Human Rights Watch focused international attention on the plight of migrant workers in Dubai[6], as well as repression of civil society in Iran[7] After the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, he was a member of the first UN-commissioned human rights fact finding mission to Afghanistan. Between 2001 and 2004, he worked with NGOs focusing on Afghanistan and Iraq[8]

He came to the United States from Iran in 1983 as a student and received his doctorate in Physics from Boston University in 1994.[9] He was a professor of Physics at the City University of New York until 2000. His groundbreaking research in Nano-Physics has been published in prestigious scientific journals such as Nature. He holds four patents in this field.[10]
