The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is an independent, non-profit and nongovernmental organisation that is committed to promoting liberal policy and politics.
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation is active both at home and abroad and had its 50th anniversary in 2008. . Our activities in third countries are part of the Germany’s development cooperation and foreign policy work.
Together with our partners – which include liberal political parties as well as non-governmental organisations – we support the development of constitutional and democratic institutions and promote a free market a free market economy. But development policy is not a one-way street: we engage in dialogue and bring back into the German context successful political examples from our project countries.

More than one hundred individual projects are implemented by over 250 staff members in the various project regions. Funding is provided by the German federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the German Federal Foreign Office and, increasingly, by the European Union.
