Our Mission


Humanity in Action was founded to provide an educational space for transatlantic dialogue, reflection, historical inquiries and informed action. 

We educate to encourage critical exploration of liberal democracy and pluralism, within the specific national historical and present contexts of our Fellowship programs.

We connect an ever growing transatlantic community to promote continual learning and collaboration.

We inspire action for advancing social justice, equality and human right.

Through our programs:

    • We affirm the importance of strengthening liberal democratic values by building bridges within and among international communities.
    • We strive to develop inclusive spaces in which contentious ideas are respectfully engaged, modeling the type of pluralistic, discursive society we imagine.
    • We support a vision of pluralistic societies that embrace differences and negotiate their boundaries through respectful, dignified political, social and personal relationships.
