The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is a non-profit German political foundation committed to the values of social democracy. The foundation, headquartered in Berlin and Bonn, was founded in 1925 and is named after Friedrich Ebert, Germany’s first democratically elected president.
Today, the FES maintains branch offices in over 90 countries and carries out activities in more than 100 countries.
The Tbilisi-based South Caucasus Cooperation Office coordinates FES’ activities in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan. In all three countries, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung aims at fostering democracy, peace and social justice through political dialogue, education and research.
Our partners include NGOs, academics and experts, journalists, parliaments, ministries and political decision-makers.
