Working mode, goals

Its objectives as fixed in the declaration on political principles include the creation and safeguarding of an open society of free citizens, the civil society. Task of the state is to guarantee the freedom of citizens and to give his agency a secure legal framework. The takeover of tasks in competition or in place of private companies by the state the foundation rejects. Its concept of sustainable policy stipulates that "the solution of today's problems (can't be determined) at the expense of future generations, to the detriment of public finances, in the social security systems and, above all, at the expense of a livable nature"(political principles, penultimate paragraph). The foundation has a separate think tank section called "Liberal Institute", which should not be confused with the Liberal Institute which was founded in Zurich in 1979. The foundation offers scholarships for students.


Topics

We used the DGs of the EU to generate a basic list of topics. This list is going to be steadily extended. However we try to preserve a persistent list of topics.


Semantic Fields

What we call here a semantic field is the idea to categorize think tanks in a two level system. The first levels are so called 'Virtual Networks' and the second are the semantic fields. Accordingly every semantic field entered here has to be attached to a virtual network. If you would like to follow a special phenomenon among think tanks please contact us and we are going to add a new virtual network. Semantic fields are topics that promote a virtual network. Lets take climate change as an example: 'climate change skeptics' is the virtual network and 'adaption instead of mitigation' would be one possible semantic field.
