The IDL-Instituto Amaro da Costa is an independent political association founded in 1975. IDL aims to serve Portuguese leaders and citizens interested in enhancing their understanding of the past and appreciating present challenges through research and education on cultural, social, economic and political phenomena that influence the free exercise of democracy in Portugal –notably those related to Christian democracy. After the death of Adelino Amaro da Costa in 1980, IDL took on the name of the co-founder of the Portuguese democratic regime and since then has been dedicated to preserving and promoting his legacy.
