“Freedom, justice and solidarity are the basic principles underlying the work of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS). The KAS is a political foundation, closely associated with the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU).
With more than 70 offices abroad and projects in over 120 countries, KAS makes a unique contribution to the promotion of democracy, the rule of law and a social market economy. To foster peace and freedom KAS encourages a continuous dialog at the national and international levels as well as the exchange between cultures and religions.
The KAS Beirut Office implements two distinct programs:
The country programme Lebanon emphasizes on democracy, civil society, social market economy, intercultural dialogue, prevention of conflict and Euro-Mediterranean relations, as well as the interreligious and cultural dialogue in Lebanon. It engages in several activities for its mission and aims that take the form of conferences, seminars, workshops, and forums for dialogue to debates or round tables. Further, it issues publications and engages with policy makers.
The country programme Lebanon supports projects independently as well as in cooperation with the Rule of Law Programme Middle East / North Africa, which is one of five regional rule of law programmes managed worldwide by the KAS. The Rule of Law Programme focuses on the protection of human rights, the separation of power, an independent judiciary and supports regional cooperation instruments that promote rule of law and democracy. It aims to promote primarily the rule of law development through regional seminars, research and training activities.
To achieve this, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation works together with a multitude of local partner organizations. Amongst these are, inter alia, Universities and scientific institutions, Think Tanks, civil society associations and organizations of the private sector as well as governmental institutions and parties.”
