In Mexico, FNF seeks to promote liberal ideas by fostering a market economy, the rule of law, and civic education. We work on topics such as innovation, digitization, and the open market because an innovative and open society can promote the global freedom of individuals. Development depends on the ability of people to cooperate voluntarily to transform their creativity into value for others. We work together with Mexican organizations and civil society to promote the rule of law and a stronger democracy in which human rights are defended, and where good governance is a priority.
What does FNF do in Mexico? We work on projects focused on a variety of themes including Market Economy, Rule of Law and Good Governance, Human Rights, Liberal Dialogue and Civic Education. Find out more about these focus areas here.
