Open Society Foundations
Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens.
The Open Society Foundations work to build vibrant and tolerant societies whose governments are accountable and open to the participation of all people. We seek to strengthen the rule of law; respect for human rights, minorities, and a diversity of opinions; democratically elected governments; and a civil society that helps keep government power in check. We help to shape public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, and economic systems and safeguard fundamental rights. Also we implement initiatives to advance justice, education, public health, and independent media.
Furthermore, we build alliances across borders and continents on issues such as corruption and freedom of information. Working in every part of the world, the Open Society Foundations place a high priority on protecting and improving the lives of people in marginalized communities.
We believe in:
– fundamental human rights, dignity, and the rule of law.
– a society where all people are free to participate fully in civic, economic, and cultural life.
– addressing inequalities that cut across multiple lines, including race, class, gender, sexual orientation, and citizenship.
– holding those in power accountable for their actions and in increasing the power of historically excluded groups.
– helping people and communities press for change on their own behalf.
– responding quickly and flexibly to the most critical threats to open society.
– taking on controversial issues and supporting bold, innovative solutions that address root causes and advance systemic change.
– encouraging critical debate and respecting diverse opinions.
