The 2010 Washington Human Rights Summit: Affirming Fundamental Freedoms, in Washington, D.C. on February 17, 18 and 19, 2010 will bring together many of the new generation of dissidents and human rights advocates with U.S. policy makers, officials from other democratic governments, and influential figures from the world of media, think tanks, universities, NGOs, and human rights and freedom of expression activists. The summit will produce an action plan for the Obama Administration, other governments and multilateral institutions in defense of democratic values and fundamental human rights. It will also give government officials the opportunity to hear from activists currently engaged in frontline struggles for freedom and democracy.
