Freedom is a universal human desire and essential for lasting peace and prosperity.  The Bush Institute’s Human Freedom programs spotlight freedom advocates and support democratic movements.

The Freedom Collection is a living archive.  The collection features artifacts from freedom movements around the world as well as online interviews, documentaries, and discussions with those who have been instrumental in the advancement of human freedom.  Launched in 2012, the collection is intended to inspire and help those who struggle for their own freedom and encourage those who live in the United States and other free countries to support the spread of human freedom.

The Freedom Advocate Initiative supports the spread of freedom around the world by offering fellowships, extending moral support, and holding conferences and forums.

The Liberty and Leadership Forum helps prepare democracy advocates from transitional societies to be leaders under new conditions of freedom. It teaches the principles of liberal democracy and economic freedom, lessons from other democratic transitions, and practical leadership skills.
