Rechtsstaat und Ordnungspolitik - Foundation Office Brazil
The rule of law, democracy, and human rights are universal values that are part of the global KAS mission. Even though there are a consolidated state and economy in Brazil, the democracy is still young and undergoes constant challenges to its full formation. These issues are related to the lack of access to basic rights and inequality. Therefore, the social market economy aims for a more harmonious relationship between economy and society, seeking to reduce the impacts of inequality through efficient public policies. It is important to highlight that these universal values are utmost for the country to continue walking on the path of development, based on the guarantee of rights, on human dignity, and on the formulation of public policies with positive impacts in the future. Furthermore, the fight against corruption is also vital, since it seeks to guarantee a fair and balanced government operation, based on international best practices on transparency and the use of resources by states, institutions, and society.
