Open Society Foundations
The Open Society Foundations (OSF) is a private foundation whose aim is to promote democratic governance and human rights, as well as economic, social and juridical reform by using its influence on public policies. Our programme is supported by the Open Society European Policy Institute which is the EU policy arm of the Open Society Foundations. They work to foster open societies inside and outside Europe by leveraging the EU’s policies, legislation, funding, and political influence. The institute brings into EU policy debates evidence, argument, and recommendations drawn from the work of the Open Society Foundations in more than 100 countries. The foundations’ priorities include human rights, justice, and accountability pursued through a wide range of policy areas including health, media, information, youth, and education.
