2 March 2022
The UK-hosted International Ministerial Conference on Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) in July 2022 will drive international efforts in defending FoRB for all and look at ways different religious or belief communities around the world can work together, and with governments and civil society. This conference will allow us to use our global influence and convening power to promote and protect freedom of religion or belief for all internationally.
Preparations for the conference are underway, including consultations with our international and domestic partners to consider possible themes and outcomes. The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office is working closely with the Prime Minister's Special Envoy for FoRB, Fiona Bruce MP, on this and wider conference planning.
