Since its founding on 11 April 1967, the Hanns Seidel Foundation has been engaged in political education with the aim of promoting the “democratic and civic education of the German people on Christian foundations” , to quote its statutes. The foundation, which is politically aligned with the Hanns Seidel Foundation, is named for the eponymous former Bavarian prime minister and CSU chairman, Hanns Seidel. Political foundations are financially, legally and organisationally independent of each party, although they do operate within the bounds of their respective party’s ideology. The Hanns Seidel Foundation embodies Christian-social values, which influence our work both domestically and abroad.
