Advancement of democratic and constitutional structures as well as “good governance” and economic development are in the focus of the work of the Hanns Seidel Foundation in Namibia. The Hanns Seidel Foundation, in close cooperation with its partners, has actively supported the development of a democratic society and the economic performance in Namibia since 1978.

Measures: Publications
We support the government of Namibia in the fight against corruption through information and sensibilization in our workshops and by financing the monthly publication "Corruption Tracker" that informs about recent cases of corruption and the follow-up of previous cases. Furthermore we have a close cooperation with the undefinedAnti-Corruption Commission (ACC). In addition to this the HSF funds regular undefinedpublications.

Aims and Objectives
