Re-Claim Democracy - Oslo, Norway

Oslo Freedom Forum 2024

[dd-term-meta]

| Oslo, Norway

The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) invites you to join us in Oslo, Norway, for the 16th annual Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF) from June 3 to 5, 2024, at the Oslo Konserthus.

Human rights advocates from around the globe will take the OFF stage to share their efforts to defy repression, speak out against injustice, and promote liberal democracy. This year’s theme, Reclaim Democracy, emphasizes the pivotal role every individual — speaker and participant alike — plays within the global movement for freedom and democracy.

Over the last 18 years, HRF has witnessed a global democratic decline and a rise in authoritarianism. Dictatorships in Russia and Iran grew in strength, while India and Georgia slid into authoritarianism. Today, 5.7 billion people — 72% of the world — live under the tyranny of a hybrid authoritarian regime or a full-fledged dictatorship. HRF’s research overwhelmingly shows that authoritarianism is the largest obstacle not just to political freedom but to the realization of every other basic individual right and societal aspiration.

Amid this global trend, OFF offers an important platform to Reclaim Democracy, bringing together the world’s top human rights defenders and industry leaders to exchange valuable tools, knowledge, and resources in the struggle for basic rights and individual liberties. It does so through inspiring theater talks, thought-provoking panel discussions, hands-on workshops, networking opportunities, and a creative expo space.

You, too, can take part in these discussions, learn about the struggle for freedom directly from dissidents on the frontlines, and join a global movement committed to upholding and advancing human rights. Register today for the 2024 Oslo Freedom Forum.

| Oslo, Norway

On June 5, the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) will host the seventh annual Financial Freedom track at the 2024 Oslo Freedom Forum.

Designed to shed light on how authoritarian regimes around the world are deploying financial repression to target dissidents, and to show how citizens worldwide are pushing back with open-source software, the program will feature speakers from more than a dozen countries worldwide ranging from Nigeria to Nicaragua.

The Financial Freedom track will be a great place for activists to meet world experts who can help them strengthen their work with better financial tools that governments cannot stop.

On June 3 and 4, HRF will also run a Bitcoin 101 for Activists workshop series at the Oslo Concert Hall, covering the basics of using Bitcoin as safely and effectively as possible for nonprofit leaders.
