FNF Greece and Cyprus: We are the #freedomfighters
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, founded in the 1950s, is the largest liberal political foundation in Europe, with more than 60 offices and 200 employees worldwide.
In Greece, the Foundation operated for the first time in the 90s, supporting dozens of liberal initiatives and organizations, shaping the vibrant liberal network active in the country
After a short period of absence, the Greek office resumed its operations in 2012, during a difficult period for Greek-German relations, the economy, and the society, contributing to the promotion of open dialogue, strengthening Civil Society, and supporting liberal actors in the country.
In 2021, the Greece office "grew" as it is now also responsible for Cyprus.
In 2022, we completed 10 years of reopening, with numerous collaborations, supporting liberal initiatives and personalities in the Greek space and empowering women and the new generation.
