Greece remains with a majority government: Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his Nea Dimokratia secured the majority in parliament with 39.9% of the vote. Alexis Tsipra’s SYRIZA party fell down to 31.5%. Dr. Athanasios Grammenos, Greece expert of the foundation, sees in this choice a polarization between left and right, with which the voters had to decide for the ‘smaller evil’. The liberal forces in Greece could not assert themselves in this polarized environment. For them, it remains to be hoped that Mitsotakis will now seek to reactivate the economy and privatize services. In any case, there will be no ‘liberal’ change of direction under Mitsotakis.

Humans of Freedom

LP1_7395Being a woman, a mother, a self-employed entrepreneur, and a political activist is hard and I often feel discriminated against. Still I keep fighting for liberal and human rights since for me reforming the society I live in is a deed of responsibility

IMG_3913I would have never imagined that I would be able to work together with people from countries, who back then decided about the future of my country. Today, together with my colleagues from other Member States, I can now actively shape the future of not only my country, but Europe as a whole. 

IMG_4105We always have to re-invent ourselves. That’s what makes life so interesting. That’s what makes our life an adventure and not a place of despair.
Our society is based on freedom. And freedom means change, means discussion, changing opinion and influencing each other.

AnnikaThe spirit that I got from home and which has shaped me significantly is the mind-set that only I am responsible of my life and nobody else. You can’t just stand there and wait for the things to happen. You need to go out there and do it and most importantly, work for it. Nothing in life comes for free, not even freedom.

A lively dialogue is based on tolerance and mutual respect. Our activities aim at promoting and developing these basic values through intercultural exchange.
