The projects in the MENA Region have always played an important role in Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom’s work abroad. The Foundation has been operating in the region for more than five decades, where our first program was kicked off in Tunisia in 1964 focusing on the training of journalists.
Strengthening freedom and promoting liberal solutions are the principal goals of our project work in this heterogeneous region. Together with our liberal partners from the Atlantic to the Gulf, we support the further development of the rule of law, market economy, democratic institutions and the participation of civil society. The MENA Regional Office was located in Cairo, Egypt, for many years and is now operating from Amman, Jordan.
