On May 17, the 2023 Geneva Summit for Human Rights and Democracy will hold its 15th annual gathering in Geneva, Switzerland.

The renowned Geneva Summit assembles hundreds of courageous dissidents, human rights activists, diplomats, journalists, and student leaders to shine a spotlight on urgent human rights situations that require global attention, including Afghanistan, Cuba, China, Hong Kong, Iran, Russia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.

The event will showcase the voices of the world’s bravest human rights defenders, many of whom have suffered torture, and give a vital platform to family members of political prisoners who are struggling to free their loved ones.

Previous editions of the Geneva Summit have drawn a standing-room only audience of more than 800 participants. Admission to this year’s Geneva Summit is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
