We are Active in over 60 Countries: The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is committed to working with all its strength for a liberal world. Our core concern is the realization of freedom and responsibility. We promote the development of democratic, market-based and constitutional structures so that more and more people can live in a liberal, democratic society.
Through the connection of EU experts, civil society, and decision makers we seek to foster open dialogue and discuss liberal policy solutions to European challenges. 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.
Through our seven offices in the MENA Region, we actively promote the political debate to support innovative liberal approaches and solutions. Our projects are liberal platforms on which the Foundation's partners from the Gulf to the Levant and the entire southern side of the Mediterranean can provide creative impulses and discuss geopolitical issues.
From our seven offices in Sub-Saharan Africa, we focus on promoting political networking. We are committed to strengthening liberalism and promoting human rights, the rule of law and the social market economy.
In North America, our focus is on the transatlantic partnership, which we see as a supporting pillar for the security and stability of Western democracies. We encourage the political debate and develop innovative liberal approaches. In Latin America we work to promote strong democratic institutions, respect for human rights and rule of law as well as promoting liberal dialogue throughout the region.
With its offices in Asia, the foundation supports programs to strengthen democratic processes, particularly free and fair elections, and transparent and accountable governance. The Foundation in the region also showcases innovation as a tool to encourage civic participation that further promotes freedom.
