Mustafa is the President of the Cyprus European Union Association, which works on EU-funded projects and aims to achieve a united Cyprus within the EU. Formerly, as director of the Turkish Cypriot Chamber of Commerce, Mustafa was one of the leaders and spokesmen of an NGO movement of 103 organizations, having led a successful “Yes” campaign for a UN plan for the solution of the Cyprus problem. The success of the “Yes” campaign convinced the EU and UN that the Turkish Cypriot community should not be isolated, and with the free movement of people on the island Damdelen and his colleagues in the Chamber of Commerce played an important role in the start of trade between the Turkish and Greek Cypriot communities.
