FES in New York

Globalization with a Democratic and Social Design

The values of freedom, justice and solidarity inspire the educational and policy related work of Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES).  As a progressive political foundation, the work of FES is oriented towards enhancing global solidarities and providing progressive solutions for pertinent global challenges - transforming our world as stipulated by the 2030 Agenda. FES believes in inclusion, participation and dialogue among all stakeholders to foster democracy, social justice and peace. 

The FES office in New York serves as a liaison between the United Nations and the International Finance Institutions in Washington D.C., FES field offices and partners in developing countries to strengthen the voice of the Global South. While working closely with academia and civil society as well as with the network of FES offices worldwide, activities often speak to multilateral institutions and their member states. International conferences and policy briefs address issues in three work areas:

Global Economy

  • Fiscal Policy, Monetary and Macro Policy
  • Finance and Banking
  • Labor and Social development
  • Global Governance

UN’s Role in the Global Peace and Security Architecture

  • Atrocity Prevention
  • Non-traditional threats / nexus between development & security
