Introduction

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is a German non-profit organization committed to the values of Social Democracy. It was founded in 1925 as a political legacy of Germany’s first democratically elected president Friedrich Ebert. To this day FES follows his mission to promote freedom, solidarity and social justice through the political process in Germany and abroad. At present, FES maintains offices in over 100 countries worldwide, of which 15 are in Asia.

FES has been working in Pakistan in cooperation with local organizations since the 1980s. Its programs aim at strengthening democratic institutions from nationa...l to local level, increasing the political participation of youth, enhancing women‘s empowerment and gender equality, promoting a free and professional media, advocating social justice in the formal and informal economy and enhancing regional cooperation for peace and development.
