The annual consultation of the Religious Liberty Partnership is a unique platform that brings together organizational CEOs and other key leaders from the political and academic community to discuss strategic issues related to international religious freedom and to explore possible work together. The consultation rotates international locations and has been in Brasilia; Oxford, UK; Bangkok; Istanbul; and Ottawa over the past several years. The 2019 Annual Consultation was held in Abuja, Nigeria. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus restrictions on travel and meetings, the RLP 2020 and 2021 Consultations were postponed.

We are excited to announce that the 2022 RLP Consultation is now scheduled for April 4-7, in Kyiv, Ukraine! In addition, from 7-9 April, there will be a Gender and Religious Freedom Consultation on "Children, Youth, and FoRB," held in partnership with the RLP Research Task Group.
