The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is an independent German non-profit organisation. With an office in Seoul since 1987 and activities in the North since 2004, we developed a strong relationship with Korea. Connecting Korea and Germany as well as supporting dialogue between the two Koreas, FNF wants to bring people together and help creating a peaceful and cooperative environment where every individual can thrive and prosper. The values of liberty are the cornerstones of our work: individual freedom and responsibility, market economy, the rule of law and human rights.
