The Global Leadership Foundation (GLF) is an NGO founded in 2004 by former State President of South Africa and Nobel Prize laureate F.W. de Klerk.

Composed of a number of former statesmen, ex-presidents and Prime Ministers, the Global Leadership Foundation exists to "promote good governance- democratic institutions, open markets, human rights and the rule of law- and to contribute to the prevention and resolution of conflict through mediation" based on the experience of its members.

Members

Current members of the Global Leadership Foundation include:



Organisation

The Global Leadership Foundation was registered in Bern, Switzerland in March 2004. It operates from a secretariat in London headed by former British diplomat, Sir Robin Christopher. Individual advisory members operate independently from the location of the secretariat.

Projects

According to its website, the Global Leadership Foundation “has a growing portfolio of projects undertaken in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe.” Because discretion is a key aspect of the Global Leadership Foundation’s concept and success, and although they are open about their mission, they do not publicly disclose the countries in which they are working unless the Head of Government of said country chooses to do so. A ‘Leadership Committee’ made up of some of the GLF Members decides if and how a project should be mounted. Exactly how projects or governments are chosen or rejected is not specified, but the website states that “GLF will consider requests from any government that is committed to or aspires to the principles of democratic institutions, human rights, open markets and the rule of law.” As an example the GLF have declared that Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwemarker was not a regime that would receive GLF services. Two of the Global Leadership Foundation’s projects, however, are in the public domain and may therefore be discussed openly by the organization. These projects took place in East Timormarker and Colombiamarker.

Funding

The Global Leadership Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization. It is funded by a combination of donations from foundations, corporations, and private individuals. To preserve GLF’s independence, a limit is placed on donations from any one corporation. Donors are invited to join GLF's network of supporters, known as its “International Council".

To keep its operating costs down, GLF employs a very small permanent staff and keeps its infrastructure, fixed assets and overheads to a minimum. It aims to recover project costs from its clients.
