Soros Foundation–Latvia

The Soros Foundation–Latvia works to challenge intolerance and xenophobia while engaging with civil society and government organizations to address crucial issues such as EU integration, brain drain, and increasing civic engagement, particularly among young people.

We support an innovative online civil engagement project created by a group of young activists that allows citizens to develop and propose legislative initiatives, two of which have been passed by Latvia’s parliament.

The foundation has responded to financial crisis in Latvia by launching a program for arts and culture entrepreneurs whose work addresses social issues and improves the quality of life for communities around Riga and other cities in Latvia.
