Vision, mission and principles

The Vision refers to an ideal or a “dream” that the institution is pursuing and would like to see accomplished. The mission explains the raison d'être of the institution in more concrete terms. Whilst maintaining an overview, it specifies the institution’s social goals (its target population: "who"; its proposed response to the needs of the target population: "how"; the changes it would like to make to the living conditions of this population: "why"). The principles refer to ethical and professional standards, which act as a framework for its activities.
