Soros Foundations Network 2006 Annual Report
Building Open Societies
Open Society Institute
The Open Society Institute and the Soros foundations network spent more than $400 million in 2006 on improving policy and helping people to live in open, democratic societies. OSI worked on issues ranging from human rights, to access to education, to freedom of information, to public health in a variety ways.
These pages describe some of OSI’s methods, including advocacy campaigns, court cases, public education, and support for direct services. Mostly the 2006 annual report, in brief items or longer articles, focuses on telling the stories of people who are helped by OSI’s work or who are doing the work of helping. Their stories are the reason why OSI spends hundreds of millions of dollars each year in every corner of the world to build societies that open up opportunities for everyone. This report highlights many of the activities and achievements of OSI and the Soros foundations.
