Freja Forum’s history

The history of Freja Forum started in the late 1990s. Networks of women in five countries on Western Balkan started projects for democracy and equal opportunities.

Inspired after a visit to Almedalen Week in Sweden in the early 2000s, Freja Forum was created as an annual forum (the second weekend in November) to develop the work with democracy and equal opportunities.

In 2017, Freja Forum was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Freja Forum in Tirana and digitally in 2000 was the fourteenth in a row!
