    The last three congresses were held in Istanbul, Turkey in 2013, Johannesburg, South Africa in 2016, Taipei, Taiwan in 2019. The 41st FIDH Congress will be held in Paris, France from October 23 to 28, 2022.
    A symbolic moment, marking 100 years of history and citizen struggles for the defense of civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights, this Congress will be an event resolutely turned towards the future and taking into consideration the current challenges of the universal fight for the respect of human rights.
    A unique moment dedicated above all to the member organizations of our federation, the Congress will include three events. The first will be the FIDH Centenary Ceremony, celebrating the anniversary of FIDH. This will take place on October 23, 2022 at the Hôtel de Ville de Paris, in the physical or digital presence of FIDH member organizations, high French authorities, foreign diplomatic representations, European and international institutions and local and regional civil society. The second will be open to representatives of the authorities, intergovernmental organizations, the diplomatic corps and civil society in the host region. It will allow member organizations to exchange and share their experiences and, together, to develop solutions to the violations they witness and to adapt their strategies to the changing human rights context. In 2022, this Open Forum will focus on the issue of universalism and on the appropriation or reappropriation of rights by citizens. Finally, the third time of this Congress is the internal congress devoted to the governance of the movement and more particularly to the definition of new political and strategic orientations, to the examination of the situation of the members, or to the election of its governing bodies.
    During the events of this Congress, these activists meet each other, learn from each other and draw the necessary strength to pursue their struggle: all rights for all.

    The FIDH Congress is divided into three parts:
    1 - The Centenary Ceremony: Anniversary and political highlight of the FIDH
    2 - The FIDH Forum: an event open to the public on human rights issues in the world
    3 - The FIDH Internal Congress: open to FIDH members only

    Format

    The Centenary Ceremony will take place in a hybrid format, i.e. in person in Paris (250 people) but with the remote participation of its member organizations and other guests (100 to 200 connected people). (100 to 200 people connected)

    - The internal Congress will take place on October 25, 26 and 27 at the Novotel Paris Est (Porte de Bagnolet)

    Digitalization

    Due to the constraints of international travel, health situations and serious security contexts in many countries, many people will not make the trip to physically participate in the congress. In addition, connectivity in some countries where FIDH member organizations operate is very complicated. It is imperative that the proposed tools and technology take this into account. Moreover, FIDH is committed to a digital transformation that will allow it to continue to work and communicate in better conditions with and between its members around the world.

    In order to allow as many people as possible to participate in the events of the FIDH Congress from a distance, FIDH has decided to engage in a hybrid process for the organization of its Forum and its internal Congress.
