We want to spread liberal ideas.
Liberal concepts are the core of our work in all areas of politics. They are our contribution to freedom and prosperity everywhere in the world. The political philosophy of liberalism has always been a driver towards democracy, the rule of law and a market economy. It offers guiding principles for political action based on the idea of freedom for each and every individual.
We work to strengthen civil society.
We support, especially, liberal organisations and parties. An active and open society is an essential requirement for the free and productive discussion and resolution of our countries‘ problems. Only civil society can ensure that democracy is not limited to formal procedures but leads to people‘s true self-determination. Liberal organisations are an important voice in the pluralistic competition of opinions.
We want to intensify the transfer of liberal solutions from abroad into the political discussion in Germany.
An open and productive dialogue is not a one – sided matter. Although we are a German political foundation we do not just want to export know-how abroad but also to learn from others and to promote a social learning process within Germany. Many countries, for instance, the Eastern European transitional states, have gained a lot of experience in reforming their political systems. This could often be used for solving ur gent problems in Germany itself.
