Fundar - Centro de Análisis e Investigación
Fundar is an independent, interdisciplinary, non-partisan and horizontal organization, which promotes the advance of substantive democracy. Fundar monitors public policies and public institutions through applied research, critical reflection, experimentation and linkage with civil, social, and governmental actors.
Fundar's guiding principles are to extend and strengthen citizen participation; to call for transparency and accountability; to contribute to the Rule of Law; to promote substantive equality; and to guarantee Human Rights
Their work is based on a comprehensive conception of Human Rights, an explicit recognition of the need to incorporate and to promote gender perspective, citizen participation, social justice and the conservation of the environment. These principles are completed with efforts to find creative solutions to the problems that Mexico faces and to formulate recommendations based on rigorous and interdisciplinary research.
