The Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF) is a thriving global community of people united by the common vision of making the world a more peaceful, prosperous, and free place. OFF brings together leaders in advocacy, business, technology, policy, philanthropy, media, academia, and arts to share their stories and brainstorm ways to expand freedom and unleash human potential across the globe. OFF has evolved from an annual flagship event in Oslo to include satellite events around the world including New York, Johannesburg, Mexico City, and now, Taiwan.  

Speakers at the first-ever Oslo Freedom Forum in Taiwan include Cambodian human rights activist and exiled opposition politician Mu Sochua, North Korean defector and activist Ji Seong-ho, Vietnamese pop star and political activist Mai Khoi, Egyptian actor, model, and LGBT rights activist Omar Sharif Jr., China bureau chief and Asia correspondent for BuzzFeed News Megha Rajagopalan, Eritrean free speech activist Vanessa Berhe, Sarawak-born investigative journalist and founder of the Sarawak Report Clare Rewcastle-Brown, and Russian democracy activist and coordinator of Open Russia Vladimir Kara-Murza. More speakers will be announced soon.  

國際人權盛會「奧斯陸自由論壇」首度移師亞洲,10日將在台北舉行。台灣民主基金會執行長廖福特指出,論壇選在台灣舉辦,表示肯定台灣在民主、人權方面的發展。

奧斯陸自由論壇由總部設在紐約的人權基金會籌辦,自2009年起,每年在挪威首都奧斯陸舉行,來自全球各地的維權人士、異議分子、慈善家和科技企業家齊聚一堂。近年來,也擴展到世界其他城市舉辦奧斯陸自由論壇子活動。

奧斯陸自由論壇發布新聞稿指出,這是論壇首度在亞洲舉行,預計有10位國際講者來台與會。人權基金會策略長格拉德斯坦(Alex Gladstein)也說,選擇台灣舉辦會議,反映台灣在民主、人權方面作為地區領袖的角色,「東亞還沒有那麼多成熟的多黨制民主國家」。

根據論壇議程,來台出席的10位國際講者包括巴林詩人及哈維爾創意異議人士獎得主阿可兒莫西(Aayat Alqormozi);柬埔寨流亡反對派領袖莫淑華(Mu Sochua);越南歌手玫瑰(Mai Khoi);埃及演員、模特兒及同志維權人士小奧瑪雪瑞夫(Omar Sharif Jr.);BuzzFeed新聞中國分社社長李香梅(Megha Rajagopalan);俄羅斯民主維權人士卡拉姆扎(Vladimir Kara-Murza);脫北者池成鎬(Ji Seong-ho)等人。
