Partners & Links

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung initiates own projects or implements projects in trustworthy collaboration with its partners. FES is not a funding agency but a cooperation partner. Our intention is to operate as a Think, Collaboration and Action Tank. In this sense we share responsibilities, workload and resources at all stages of the projects.

We are working with a variety of different partners.

On a practical approach we are regularly organizing a variety of diverse events, such as conferences, seminars and workshops as well as supporting research projects and publications.
