Friedrich-Naumann-Stiftung | 25th Anniversary of the Promoting Tolerance Program in East and Southeast Europe
We are pleased to announce that the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and the American Jewish Committee are going to mark the occasion of their 25 years of successful cooperation with a
Panel Discussion on the topic “Confronting Bigotry and Intolerance in the Face of Rising Populism”
followed by a
Festive Reception to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the “Promoting Tolerance Program in East and Southeast Europe”.
The Promoting Tolerance Program was initiated by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom and the American Jewish Committee only a few years after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the end of communist regimes in Eastern Europe. From its establishment since now, the Program has served as a platform for dialogue, designed to inspire similar efforts towards advancing democracy, improving the rights of minorities and building civil society. Both organizations have identified emerging leaders from political parties, NGOs, think tanks and media coming from the new democracies of Central, East and Southeast Europe and introduced them to initiatives aiming at fostering pluralism and respect for diversity in Europe and the United States of America. Twenty five years later we are proud to note that more than 320 participants from 25 countries in Central and Eastern Europe have contributed their knowledge, competence and enthusiasm for fighting discrimination, racism and xenophobia.
