Thor Halvorssen is a Venezuelan human rights advocate and film producer with contributions in the field of public policy, public interest advocacy, individual rights and civil liberties, and pro-democracy advocacy.

He is a columnist for the left-leaning Huffington Post and also writes for Forbes magazine.
Halvorssen is founder of the Oslo Freedom Forum, an annual gathering described by The Economist as a "spectacular human-rights festival... on its way to becoming a human-rights equivalent of the Davos economic forum". Halvorssen is also president of the Human Rights Foundation, an organization devoted to protecting liberty in the Americas.
