The Wiardi Beckman Stichting (The Wiardi Beckman Foundation) is a Dutch think tank linked to the left-of-center Labour Party (PvdA).[1]

The foundation is named after Herman Bernard Wiardi Beckman, a member of the Dutch Senate, who during the Second World War was summoned by Queen Wilhelmina to become a member of the war cabinet, but who was caught by the Sicherheitsdienst and who died in the Dachau concentration camp.[2]

The foundation published the magazine Socialisme & Democratie (Socialism & Democracy) since 1970.
