Civil Society and Democratic Participation
In light of German history and its own participation in the post war history of Germany, the Greens and the Heinrich Boell Stiftung see democratic participation as a basic ingredient for a vibrant and stable democracy. It aims to strengthen civil society as a motor for securing and developing democracy. An essential part of this is the effort to secure and implement the rights of minorities in society. The foundation supports projects in Israel that help to implement the rights of foreign workers and low paid workers. It supports organizations that work for the improvement of the status of the Arab-Palestinian minority in Israel as well as efforts to promote fair compromises concerning the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
