Human Rights - Norway
The Netherlands and Norway jointly strive to protect and promote human rights all over the world, which is a foreign policy priority for both countries. In this way, we contribute to a world that is livable for ourselves as well as future generations.
The embassy talks with Norwegian policy makers, human rights defenders and institutes, and participate in events that promote universal human rights such as the Oslo Freedom Forum and the Oslo Pride.
Movies that Matter
Every year the Ministry of Foreign Affairs provides the embassies with a human rights films from Movies that Matter. Many Dutch embassies use this opportunity to share thoughts on important human right issues.
