Director Manager and EuroMeSCo "liaison officer": Carlos Carnero González
The Foundation was established in 1997, in the context of growing globalization, as a channel for political, social, economic and cultural reflections in Spain and Europe. The main goal of the promoters of this project is the analysis and definition of new ideas, aiming to engage citizens and society as a whole. Analysing, discussing and taking into account and contrasting different points of view about these subjects and issues that most concern society forms part of the foundations’ objective that describes itself as a ‘meeting-place’. They also formulate proposals to the political parties and other economic and social actors for their possible incorporation into their decision-making processes.
Areas of work
The areas of work range from issues of socio-economic nature (such as the model of growth for the Spanish economy, systems of family support, or the challenges facing the welfare state) to those related to the quality of democracy and the security of the population (fight against crime, fight against terrorism, mafias, vandalism, etc.).
Fundación Alternativas is an independent foundation devoted to all kind of issues: political, international, economic, social, and cultural. Therefore, the Foundation aims to provide its expertise in all those matters to the situation in the Mediterranean.
