Partner institutions

The collaboration between Korean organizations and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung began in the late
1960s with the opening of an office in Seoul. While the form of partnership has changed over the years the basic aims and objectives have not changed. In Korea we want to foster dialogue between Korean and German institutions towards identifying appropriate policies, and towards identifying the most appropriate relationship between Korea and Germany, Korea and Europe and Asia and Europe. The Foundation wants to contribute towards a social and pluralistic democracy and the adoption of socially balanced economic policies as a way to sustainable development.
