Who is Gerard Noodt?

A Religious

Freedom Fighter

We are

a non-partisan, policy-relevant actor, stimulating research, debate, and policy development in support of the effective realization of freedom of religion or belief and matters of conscience.

We Subscribe

fully to existing standards on freedom of religion or belief in international human rights law, as developed by the United Nations, the Council of Europe, European Union Institutions, the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and other relevant international organisations.


We Recognise

all inherent Human Rights and believe that the Freedom of Conscience and Speech form the basis of protecting them. Without freedom of conscience there is neither responsibility for action, nor rule of law. Without freedom for religions and belief groups there will be decay of morality and socio-economic welfare. The Gerard Noodt Foundation for Freedom of Religion or Belief, therefore, works with those who are in full support of the rule of law. 

Our Approach…

is international, interdisciplinary and consultative, and it favors practical relevance. To achieve its aims, we lend support to active entities with aims that are compatible with this mission.
