Alternativas Foundation

A CENTER THAT CONTRIBUTES CRITICAL THINKING AND PROPOSALS TO RESOLVE THE SOCIAL AND POLITICAL ISSUES OF OUR SOCIETY.

The Alternativas Foundation was set up in 1997 as a channel of political, social, economic, and cultural thought in Spain and Europe, as a response to increasing globalization.

It is a meeting place for discussion and generation of ideas and proposals with the participation of the most dynamic and progressive actors in our society. 


OBJECTIVE

The main objective of its promoters is the analysis and definition of new ideas, addressing issues of interest to citizens and society as a whole. Its mission also involves making proposals to political parties and other economic and social actors with the hope that these will be taken into account in decision-making.

COMMITMENT

The Foundation has different areas that cover all public policies, from a national, European, and global perspective. Its Laboratory is where rigorous proposals that respond to public concerns are drawn up. The Foreign Policy Observatory is dedicated to the analysis and drafting of proposals on Spanish foreign policy and its monitoring in the European and global framework. Meanwhile, Studies on Progress is a program aimed at young researchers with the objective of finding new alternatives to contemporary problems. And finally, the Observatory for Culture and Communication exists as platform for analyzing and proposing initiatives in the culture and communication sectors, both in Spain and the European Union, as well as in Latin America and the Hispanic regions of the US.
