Terra Recognita Foundation – for a dialogue in Central Europe

History, objectives

The Terra Recognita Foundation was established in November 2005 as a Central European non-governmental foreign policy initiative. The objectives concern two main areas:

  • enhancing the spirit of cooperation among countries of the region, and promoting knowledge about Central Europe;
  • improving inter-state and interethnic relations by initiating dialogue and by disseminating information.

Central Europe

We use the term “Central Europe” to denote all the countries in the region – between Germany and Russia – which experienced dictatorial or other autocratic regimes, were under the influence of foreign powers or did not exist as independent nations until the 1990’s.
