Global partner – the international work of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

The guiding principles of the international work of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) are to promote democracy and development, contribute to peace and security, help shape globalisation into an inclusive process and support the widening and deepening of the European Union. Through projects in over 100 countries FES has been actively involved in the development and consolidation of civil society and state structures for promoting democracy and social justice, strong and free trade unions, human rights and gender equality.

In addition to its core endeavour of promoting democracy in individual countries, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is increasingly working on global and regional issues. Its focus areas are the widening and deepening of the European integration process, further developing the transatlantic relationship and reforming systems of global governance.

The dialogue between different societal actors, between different cultures and social models, between North and South, EU countries and candidate countries and international institutions is indispensable, especially for stabilising fragile social and state structures and for finding solutions to cross-cutting regional and global issues. With its worldwide network of offices and partners the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung has a range of instruments at its disposal that allow it to make a substantial contribution to these debates and to organise and propel this dialogue process at various levels.

The further development of the European Union, the most successful regional integration project, confronts the member states and neighbouring states with a wide range of challenges. The process of European integration raises issues such as creating a common European foreign and security policy and a European economic and social model. It is the objective of the FES to promote economic and political integration in Europe, especially in the transition economies of Eastern Europe, in a socially equitable manner.

The transatlantic dialogue historically evolved and continues to be a key factor in our work. Common policies are the only way to guarantee sustainable development and tackle global problems in partnership.

The global network of the political partners of the FES provides a forum for sharing and learning. The partners include traditional parties and trade unions, non-governmental organisations, academic and policy think tanks as well as governmental institutions (such as parliaments and ministries).
