Project Office Ukraine and Belarus
As the liberal German political foundation, we help promote freedom and responsibility in our project countries by means of political education. We support like-minded partners in politics, civil society, media and science in their pursuit of an open society, the rule of law, the enforcement of universal human rights and a rule-based market economy. In addition, we create opportunities for exchange and dialogue with liberal forces across Europe and worldwide.

Human Rights Defenders – Fighting for Freedom and Democracy
The large-scale, pro-democracy protest movements of recent years have demonstrated: Individuals take extremely high risks when they campaign for civil and human rights and for free and fair elections in states where human rights are frequently violated. Our publication is dedicated to the work of human rights defenders - pro-democracy activists, opposition politicians and their supporters, whose important work continues to go unnoticed too frequently.
