Human Rights Defenders Forum

The Carter Center participates in hosting Human Rights Defenders Policy Forums, which bring together human rights activists from a number of countries. President and Mrs. Carter, the U. N. high commissioner for human rights, and the special representative on human rights defenders have keynoted these conferences.

This year's forum "Restoring Faith in Freedom" was held on July 21-24, 2018. Topics included economic and social rights, building faith in institutions, strengthening the social contract, and the recent backlash against human rights defenders. The forum also showcased the experiences of the courageous women and men on the front lines of the fight for human rights.
