Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

Friedrich Ebert Foundation ‒ FES
Bonn, Germany

This organisation may not be a traditional think tank. We have included it in this list as we deem it to be a 'boundary' organisation – in other words, it might have some qualities or characterstics of a think tank.

The FES is the oldest political foundation in Germany. It is named after Friedrich Ebert, the first democratically elected President. As a party-oriented foundation, The FES base their work on the basic values of social democracy: freedom, justice and solidarity. As a non-profit institution, The FES act independently and would like to promote pluralistic social dialogue on the political challenges of the present.
