Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy

Geneva, Switzerland and Online

The Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy is held in connection to the main annual session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, when foreign ministers gather in Geneva, to force critical issues onto the international agenda. The 14th Geneva Summit will be held on 6 April 2022 in situ.

The Summit sheds light on urgent human rights situations that require global attention. Gathering human rights heroes, activists and former political prisoners, it is a unique platform to testify about their personal struggles for democracy and freedom, while building an international community to take on dictatorships.

The Geneva Summit is sponsored by a coalition of 25 human rights NGOs from around the world.
