The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), an independent federal advisory body created by the International Religious Freedom Act (IRFA) to monitor religious freedom abuses abroad, has released its 2013 Annual Report. The Report  highlights the status of religious freedom globally and identifies those governments that are the most egregious violators. “The state of international religious freedom is increasingly dire due to the presence of forces that fuel instability,” said USCIRF Chair Katrina Lantos Swett. “These forces include the rise of violent religious extremism coupled with the actions and inactions of governments.”

The National Endowment for Democracy (NED), through its support to hundreds of grassroots organizations around the world that are working to secure and protect basic rights and freedoms, is keenly aware of the challenges faced by minority populations and religious groups around the world. We welcome the opportunity to join with USCIRF to highlight the cause of religious freedom and hope you will join us for a presentation of the report findings by Dr. Lantos Swett, followed by a discussion featuring regional experts from the NED Board of Directors and staff.
