The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organization from Germany working for adult civic education on an international scale. According to our mission, we are committed to promoting the values of liberalism: Individual freedom, democracy, rule of law, and market economy. Tolerance, the full respect to human rights, and a secular state, which respects the religious beliefs of every citizen, are crucial for our understanding of liberalism.
The FNF has been acting in Turkey with partners from civil society, academia, economy and politics since 1991, when we opened our office in Ankara. In 2002, we moved to Istanbul.
