The 8th World Congress for Religious Freedom is organized by the International Religious Liberty Association (IRLA). Chartered in 1893, the IRLA today has thirteen regional chapters around the world.
We promote the freedom to believe, or not to believe, as defined by Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. We believe religious freedom is a foundational human right, which is intimately connected with all other human rights.
