“developing relevant liberal reform concepts that further the democratic and economic development of countries”
The Foundation’s work focuses on formulating relevant liberal reform concepts that further the democratic and economic development of countries. The FNF trains public representatives and party office bearers with a view to developing liberal solutions for political, strategic and organisational challenges.
Cross-border regional networks that have an impact at a national and regional level serve to integrate and strengthen liberal partners further.
In cooperation with its think tank partners, the Foundation analyses political and economic freedom in Africa and introduces liberal approaches into political and policy debates.
In particular, the Foundation focuses on developing solutions to political and economic problems resulting from weaknesses in the rule of law and democratic principles, poor education systems, infrastructural shortcomings and excessive regulation (red tape).
