About the conference host

FIHRM is delighted to hold its first conference in South America at the International Museum for Democracy in Rosario, Argentina.

We would like to thank Guillermo Whpei, FIHRM Council Member and President of the Fundaciòn para la Democracia Internacional, for hosting FIHRM 2017.

The Museum for International Democracy, led by the Fundaciòn, will open during the FIHRM Conference. The museum will be a place to reflect on what Democracy means. The intention is to encourage visitors to work towards a better quality of life, promoting free speech, debate, mutual respect and analyzing democratic values. It will be the first museum of its kind in Argentina.
