Danish Forum for Freedom of Religion
or Belief

In 2018, the Danish Forum for Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) was established in connection with the Danish Government’s initiative for Freedom of Religion or Belief. The aim of the Forum for FoRB is to gather relevant Danish actors from all faith-based and secular civil society backgrounds in Denmark, including academia, religious institutions, and others who wish to engage in and discuss the Danish efforts on freedom of religion or belief abroad.

The Danish Forum for FoRB meets twice a year. Previous meetings have taken place in January 2018, June 2018, February 2019, October 2019, May 2020, and December 2020. The spoken language is primarily Danish at the meetings.

The most recent meeting was held as a web-conference in December 2020. The focus of the meeting was blasphemy laws and the relationship between freedom of religion or belief and freedom of expression. 

The May 2020 meeting in the Danish Forum for FoRB  was held as a web-conference. See the page “Web-conference on Covid-19 and Freedom of Religion or Belief”. 

The October 2019 meeting was held in the Danish Parliament and was attended by more than 100 Danish actors, representing civil society in general, inducing faith-based organisations, academics, religious leaders, and politicians.
