Stiftelsen Svenskt Internationellt Liberalt Center (SILC) is a liberal foundation that assists democracy development. The goal of our projects is to strengthen organisations and support individuals who develop and promote democracy and human rights.
Democratization requires outstanding political participants and entities who can mobilize citizens and institutions to undertake necessary change. SILC works primarily with political parties and youth, women’s and human rights’ organizations as well as independent journalists.
For SILC, a society can never be considered uplifting if its citizens lack the right to say what they think, to organize in defense of their interests, and to choose their leaders in democratic elections.
The bulk of our work occurs in totalitarian and post-totalitarian states such as Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cuba, Moldova, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine. We also have smaller projects in Singapore, Somalia and and Zimbabwe.
