The Forum for Democracy (in Dutch: Forum voor Democratie; FvD) is a national conservative and Euroskeptic political party in the Netherlands, founded on September 22, 2016, by Thierry Baudet, a historian and author, and accompanied by the lawyer Theo Hiddema.

In the March 2019 provincial elections, the Forum for Democracy – running on a strong anti-mass migration platform – performed extremely well, going from having zero seats in the Dutch Senate to becoming the largest party in the chamber.[1] It began to overshadow the Party for Freedom, another prominent Dutch right-wing party.[2]
