The FMS aims to promote democracy at home and worldwide. We champion emerging democracies and (social) democrats in countries where freedom is under pressure. We support the building of democratic political parties, through trainings, at the request of our foreign partners and maintain an extensive network of international political foundations and partner organisations. We also organise public events on democracy.
