About    

 

The  Southeast  Asia  Freedom  of  Religion  or  Belief  Conference (SEAFORB )  is   an   assembly of religious freedom advocates who are dedicated to promote religious freedom  in Southeast  Asia.  The SEAFORB assembly is an ongoing project to advance FORB, bringing religious equality and liberty for all individuals.  

 

This is the fifth time the conference has been convened. The first conference  was  held  in  October 2015 in Bangkok and resulted in a Declaration of Freedom of Religion or Belief in Southeast Asia. The second conference was held in Dili, East Timor in August 2016 and secured commitment from participants to develop long-term action plans to further advance and promote freedom of religion or belief. The third conference was held in Manila, Philippines in November 2017  and  concluded with the formation  of  FORB  Network.  The  fourth  conference  was  organized  in  Bangkok  in August  2018  and  focused  on  fostering networking among FORB advocates in four countries of priority:  Indonesia,   Malaysia,   Myanmar   and   Vietnam.   The  fifth  SEAFORB  will  be  held in Bangkok in Nov 2019 again this year to engage with the global movement on FORB.
