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.

Past topics include economic and social rights, building faith in institutions, strengthening the social contract, and the backlash against human rights defenders. The forums also showcase the experiences of the courageous women and men on the front lines of the fight for human rights.

The 2019 Human Rights Defenders Forum, "Building Solidarity toward Equality for All," will be held Oct. 12-15.
