Oslo Freedom Forum 2020




A virtual human

rights conference.

Free to the world.

Each year, the Oslo Freedom Forum community gathers in Norway to witness powerful stories from some of the world’s most innovative human rights defenders and advocates. But exceptional times call for exceptional measures. This year, the Oslo Freedom Forum is going completely virtual.

We’re bringing the main stage experience directly to you as we gather to witness these activists sharing their personal stories with the world.

Join us for two days of keynotes from an inspiring lineup of presenters who will share their insights and innovative approaches to defending freedom.


Our Sponsors

The Oslo Freedom Forum is a global gathering of activists united in standing up to tyranny.

The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes and protects human rights globally, with a focus on closed societies. What differentiates HRF from other human rights organizations is our singular focus on authoritarian regimes.

HRF created the Oslo Freedom Forum to bring the fight for freedom to the forefront of the global agenda. Each year, the event showcases the testimonies of individuals who have risked their lives for freedom. With a focus on civil and political rights, this annual gathering exemplifies the resilience and nobility of the human spirit.
