Framework for a Free Society™
What drives long-term human flourishing? What characteristics of a society give individuals—especially those least fortunate among us—the best opportunities to improve their lives?
At the Charles Koch Institute, these questions motivate our mission.
To share our vision and invite partnership, we’ve developed the Framework for a Free Society. The Framework consists of five interrelated dimensions that describe the ideas, values, and institutions that enable societies to flourish. By applying these ideas to problems and opportunities, we can help individuals pursue and achieve happiness.
