International Exchange and Advanced Training
Whoever wishes to spread liberal thought and to further its organisation around the world must promote a lively intercultural dialogue and exchange. Active listening and learning are crucial: true dialogue is based on tolerance and mutual respect. The task of the Department for International Exchange and Advanced Training in Germany at the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is to foster and implement these liberal principles through facilitating a worldwide exchange of ideas.

We are Human Rights Defenders
Today is Human Rights Day. It is a marker of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), which was proclaimed by the United Nations on December 10, 1948. The day also reminds us that democracy and freedom cannot be taken for granted - we must defend them. The commitment of human rights defenders is required in all countries of the world.

Even politics needs a laboratory to generate innovation
Innovation comes in a lot of form not only in tech like software. Policy and politics need innovations. What innovation have you all built? With the fake news and disinformation what innovation for “next”. In digital age that is constant change innovation is a process of breakthrough repeatedly. How can we construct an innovation in politics that have been here for so long?
Making Magic Designing & Facilitating Impactful Gatherings
As someone who is in charge of organizing events in a non-profit organization, the pandemic has created a new challenge for me. What was held in a small budget hotel ballroom with bad taste coffee and small bite-sized snacks has turned into a 2-hour gatherings in virtual conference platform. It worked for the past 2 months, but then the webinar fatigue, happens.
Fun - a serious factor for online seminars
Our seminars should be journeys of discovery, where participants enjoy participating in the working and thinking process, where they find knowledge and share theirs, try out new things and put old ones to the test. We want to make liberal values tangible, not just theoretical. Can all this be done online too? Even for international programmes that last as long as one or even two weeks? Yes, it can be done!
