About SILC

Who we are

We are a liberal foundation working with democracy support. By strengthening activists in totalitarian states, we are supporting them in their struggle to topple dictators and establish democratic societies. SILC was established in late 1980’s by the Liberal People’s Party (Now the Liberal Party). We currently work in Eastern Europe, North Africa and Latin America.


We collaborate with liberal parties and foster inter-party dialogue. Strengthening of political participation among women and youths is a recurring theme in our work. In addition, we support civil society organisations and independent media in their struggle for civic and human rights.


Through our work we meet a range of fascinating people making great effort for democracy and human rights. It is important that their voices are heard and that is why we publish books and hold seminars where they can inform us about their situation.
