The Free Forum (Slovak: Slobodné fórum About this sound pronunciation ; "Free" in the sense of "freedom") is a political party in Slovakia, founded in 2004 by dissident parliamentarians from the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ). Zuzana Martináková is the leader of the party.

The Free Forum was founded in January 2004 by Ivan Šimko and other Slovak Democratic and Christian Union MPs. Two months later, Zuzana Martináková was elected party leader, and Šimko left later that year. In the 2006 parliamentary election, the party won 3.47% of the vote: falling short of the 5% threshold to join the Slovak Parliament. In the 2010 parliamentary election, the party formed part of Union – Party for Slovakia, which won only 0.7% of the vote.
