The founder of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen, has been looking for new and interesting ways of pushing forward the need for a greater level of human rights for all people, regardless of where they are located in the world. In continuing his work, Thor Halvorssen has used a large amount of the latest technology to push forward the rights of people from nations that are often seen as being closed off from the outside world; despite taking to Twitter and digital media platforms to explain the issues facing the world there are times when placing his own body on the line is the only option for the Venezuelan born University of Pennsylvania graduate.

Thor Halvorssen has recently been working closely with the major Russian dissident Gary Kasparov, the former world chess champion who has become one of the leading figures in opposition to Russian Premier Vladimir Putin. Both Halvorssen and Kasparov have been placing their own health on the line as they sought to publicize the abuses of power many governments around the world have undertaken against their own citizens. On a recent trip to Vietnam local officials beat Thor Halvorssen and his camera operator in a bid to take possession of the tape of an interview with a political prisoner held under house arrest for more than a decade.

The human rights career of Thor Halvorssen began in earnest in 1993 when his own father was arrested and tortured for investigating police corruption in relation to a drigs gang in his native Venezuela; Thor was already a student at the University of Pennsylvania when he headed the campaign that would eventually free his father from jail after more than 80 days.

Thor Halvorssen has spent much of his human rights career working with his own Human Rights Foundation that has looked to develop new areas of interest for the foundation that includes the establishment of the Oslo Freedom Forum.
