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 expressed in the United Nations 2030 Agenda. FES believes in inclusion, participation and dialogue among all stakeholders to foster democracy, social justice and peace.
The FES New York office works at the intersection of the United Nations in New York, the international financial institutions in Washington D.C., FES field offices, and partners in developing countries. Our aim is to strengthen the voices of the Global South, labor and other progressive actors. We work closely with academia, civil society, multilateral institutions and their member states. Our activities include analyses, workshops, international conferences and policy briefs in these areas:
