Reykjavik dialogue background

This international event is held both virtually and in-person in Harpa Reykjavík, if conditions allow, to support activist leadership, with victim-survivors centre stage. It is hosted by the Icelandic government in co-operation with the City of Reykjavik and organised by an international advisory group of activists in collaboration with RIKK – Institute for Gender, Equality and Difference at the University of Iceland.


The Reykjavík Dialogue consists of a conference on the 16–17 August, followed by a dialogue on 17–18 August where activists, practitioners, and survivors from around the world will together set an agenda for work to end violence against women and girls for the following five years, 2021 – 2026. The event is open to registered guests and is free to attend. Guests can send in questions for the conference panels and the dialogue via the virtual conference platform.
