About the Foundation

The Government of the Hungarian Republic established the László Teleki Foundation in 1991 to form a scientific basis for international relations and to promote the Teleki László Institute. The aim of the László Teleki Foundation is to establish a scientific basis for international relations by analyzing world and European integration tendencies and by examining diplomatic, security and foreign policy relations of the East-Central European region. It is hoped that this research will reveal opportunities for international cooperation toward the improvement of human rights for the ethnic, language and religious minorities of the region.
