ARTICLE 18, THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
IPPFoRB is made of parliamentarians from 97 different countries across North and South America, Africa, Asia, Europe and Oceania.
Almost 300 MPs from around the world have attended global conferences organised by IPPFoRB to highlight and discuss issues around freedom of religion or belief.
Over 60 MPs have been trained by IPPFoRB on issues of freedom of religion or belief.
“Within a very short time, the International Panel of Parliamentarians for Freedom of Religion or Belief has established itself as the central actor for this essential fundamental right. The fact that there is now such a strong network gives strength, courage and confidence.”
Dr. Angela Merkel, Federal Chancellor of Germany
