Freedom Book Fair May 2, 3, 4

This year’s theme is RECLAIMING SPACE. Worldwide, freedom of expression is under severe pressure and in many countries, it is already completely absent. It has become a global trend to clamp down on minority opinions, human rights defenders and all those who dare to publicly criticize authorities.

Come join us at the Freedom Book Fair to learn more about these issues and meet the freedom heroes who keep defending our freedoms.


There will be various activities over the course of three days, such as book presentations, performances, documentary screenings, and panel discussions. Freedom Book Fair is a place where writers, journalists, human right activists, artists and civilians from all over the world can discuss, connect, initiate a dialogue, celebrate their work and raise awareness for their cause.


Freedom Book Fair is hosted by The Hague Peace Projects, a young and dynamic peace organization based in The Hague, the Netherlands. Their energetic and dedicated team consists of young professionals from all over the world with broad expertise in conflict prevention, peacebuilding, and human rights. Many of them have personally lived through circumstances of violence and oppression in their countries of origin and use this experience to be catalysts of peace, nearby and far away.



The Migration Museum is approximately a 20-minute walk from Den Haag CS and Den Haag HS. Trams 2, 3, 4 and 6 stop near the museum (Brouwersgracht stop). The paid parking arrangement of The Hague applies in the vicinity of the museum. You can also park in Q-park Lutherse Burgwal


We are happy to have the Freedom Book Fair at the Migratie Museum. We share the same vision when it comes to telling stories about people and share it with a wide audience. We do this from the conviction that personal and recognizable stories contribute to a society in which people understand each other better.



Freedom Book Fair aims to contribute to widening the spaces for writers, thinkers, journalists, artists, activists, and citizens in those countries with an increasingly hostile and repressive environment towards free expression.
