Claude Maurice Mulder Bedoya, known as Mauricio Mulder (born 8 June 1956, in Lima), is a Peruvian politician, lawyer and former journalist. One of the prominent members within the old Peruvian Aprista Party, he has served in Congress since 2001. He was reelected for a fourth term in Congress, representing Lima for the APRA-PPC alliance.

Mauricio Mulder studied Law at the Catholic University in Lima, earning his law degree in 1978. From 1976 to 1977 he was General Secretary of the students' wing of the Aprista Party. He continued his academic studies at the Graduate Institute of International Studies (HEI) in Geneva, Switzerland, from which he graduated in 1985.

Under the first presidency of the leader of his party Alan García from 1985 to 1990, Mulder was Chairman of the National Broadcasting Company IRTP. From 1992 to 1995 he was United Nations official for political issues in the El Salvador peace process. He was chief editor of the center-left daily newspaper La República from 1996 to 2001. Since 1999 he is a member of National Executive Committee of the APRA. From 2004 to 2010, he served as Institutional Secretary General of the Party. Due to Jorge del Castillo's appointment as Alan García's first Prime Minister of his second Presidency, Mulder held both Institutional and Political affairs.

Mulder is considered a governing party insider, having served in Congress since 2001. He is considered a confrontational figure in Congress, constantly defending his leader Alan García from accusations.
