Established in 1958, the Friedrich- Naumann-Stiftung für die Freiheit is headquartered in Potsdam (near Berlin), Germany. It runs programs in over 60 countries. With its projects FNF strives for a life in freedom, human dignity and peace for all people around the world. The value of freedom is the guiding principle of our work. 

The foundation’s abroad work is a part of the foreign- and development-policies of the Federal Republic of Germany. Together with our partners, to which belong liberal parties, think tanks and various NGOs, we support the development of democratic institutions and rule of law and the construction of market economies.

Through promoting approved and reliable liberal concepts we contribute to the chances of more and more people to achieve prosperity. We support our partners worldwide in finding solutions to economic and political problems in their regional and cultural context.
