The mission of the Oslo Coalition on Freedom of Religion or Belief is to promote freedom of religion or belief (FORB) as a common good for everyone in every society.
It does so by:
- Facilitating discursive space for scholars, religious leaders, civil servants, experts and activists in the exploration of contemporary FORB-related topics.
- Publishing scientific research and resource materials for those working to advance FORB.
- Teaching and competence building on FORB in cooperation with partners.
The Oslo Coalition was established in 1998, and works with an international network of representatives from academia, religious and life-stance communities, international organizations, and civil society. The work and the activities of the Oslo Coalition is based on The Oslo Declaration on Freedom of Religion or Belief and The Oslo Principles on Promotion of Freedom of Religion or Belief, 2016. It is part of the International Department at the Norwegian Center for Human Rights, University of Oslo.
The Oslo Coalition’s work includes knowledge building and development of resources in the field of religion and human rights.
