Human Rights Foundation Founder Thor Halvorssen Helps Those In Closed Societies

Closed societies are not the thing of the past we would all like them to be as dictatorships and criminal governments continue to oppress the people of the world. The Human Rights Foundation now seeks to publicize the plight of the people of the world who remain trapped in closed societies, usually operated under the iron grip of a dictator. Unlike many human rights groups the Human Rights Foundation is taking a proactive approach to the problems facing the people of the world by bringing their plight to major news organizations under the motto “To ensure that freedom is both preserved and promoted”.

Venezuelan author and film producer Thor Halvorssen established the Human Rights Foundation in 2005 after working with a number of human rights groups throughout his adult life. Halvorssen had originally been inspired to enter the charitable work surrounding the promotion of human rights after seeing various members of his own family have their human rights taken away for their political opposition to the ruling Venezuelan government.

Alongside his commitment to the Human Rights Foundation the top Hollywood film producer also finds the time to promote and organize the Oslo Freedom Forum; the forum was originally meant to take place as a one off event, but proved such a success it has been held each year since. The success of Thor Halvorssen’s event has seen events take place away from Oslo in cities across the U.S.

The Human Rights Foundation has been looking for the best ways of publicizing the issues of lost human rights since the group was formed in 2005; Thor Halvorssen has remained steadfast in his conviction to creating a politically independent group filled with those who are dedicated to the fight for freedom. The board of the Human Rights Foundation sees religious leaders like Archbishop Desmond Tutu sit alongside former political prisoners, and respected politicians as they work together to bring about change in the field of human rights.

    Halvorssen decided to make sure the group remains independent by assembling a board made up of some of the most important political figures in the world. It is great for the top quality assignment review to have their way all along which is a very important thing.
