FES Headquarters


The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung has a network of more than 100 offices worldwide. FES headquarters in Bonn and Berlin carry out FES' work in Germany and coordinate its international activities.

FES in Germany enhances the judgment and decision-making capacity of citizens through qualification programmes and political education seminars. It does so through a wide network of offices and academies throughout Germany, as well as the headquarters in Bonn and Berlin. FES advises persons in leading political positions and mandates and stimulates dialogue between politics and society through its public forums.

Additionally, fostering the education of talented and socio-politically committed young students and academics is one of the main goals of the foundation. The Scholarship Programme Department offers not only financial and material support but also an extensive programme of seminars, as well as an extended network of former scholars and tutors.

International Cooperation

The aim of the international activities of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is to promote democracy and development, to contribute to peace and security, to work to make globalization socially equitable, and to support the continued development of the European Union. Through its projects in over 100 countries, the FES supports building and strengthening civil society and public institutions. Central to its work are the promotion of democracy and social justice, economic and social development, strong and free trade unions, and the advocacy of human rights and gender equality.

International cooperation is far too important
to be left to governments alone.

Willy Brandt

In recent years, the FES has placed increased emphasis on global and regional issues. Special attention has been given to the process of European integration, European Neighborhood Policy, the continued development of the transatlantic relationship, and strengthening the system of global governance. Worldwide, the FES supports regional cooperative efforts on security issues, ecological sustainability, and social progress.
Through its worldwide network of offices and partners, the FES organizes debates and discussions on current political and social problems and challenges. Its partners include political parties, trade unions, NGOs, think tanks, universities, and state institutions.
