Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS)

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is a German political foundation founded in 1962 and funded by the Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development of the Federal Republic of Germany. The KAS follows the spirit of its name giver Konrad Adenauer, the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, in fostering democracy and the rule of law, implementing social and market-economic structures and promoting human rights. With its worldwide networks to the political and social elites and with its long-term partner structures, it participates in shaping policy in developing and emerging countries.

By training and educating young professionals, the KAS promotes the developing process in social groups and political parties. Currently the KAS hosts more than 200 projects in around 120 countries on four continents with 81 field offices. The emphases of our work in Asia cover the support of current democratization processes and good governance, the intensification of the dialogue between Europe, Germany, SAARC and ASEAN, the reduction of the social consequences of economic growth, a continuation of ongoing value dialogues and a cultural exchange of ideas as well as strategic dialogues about common matters of foreign and security politics.
