The European Dialogue of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom has offices in Brussels, Madrid, and Prague.

Together with our liberal partners, we develop formats and campaigns to promote rule of law, free markets and human rights. Moreover, we coordinate EU co-funded projects in the field of democracy support, development cooperation and human rights protection.

Europeans would like to see values-based foreign policy and ditch veto
A recent survey reveals that Europeans desire an EU foreign policy rooted in values, with a focus on security, human rights, and freedom. The poll, conducted across ten member states and commissioned by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, highlights a growing sentiment that the EU Council's veto system obstructs a more unified foreign policy. As Europe assumes a greater international role, citizens are increasingly engaged and concerned about the EU's stance on global issues. The findings also suggest a nascent European identity, signaling a potential shift towards a collective European political sphere.
