„Der Sozialen Demokratie verpflichtet“

Über die Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung

Die Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) wurde 1925 als politisches Vermächtnis des ersten demokratisch gewählten deutschen Reichspräsidenten Friedrich Ebert gegründet. Der Sozialdemokrat Friedrich Ebert - vom einfachen Handwerker in das höchste Staatsamt aufgestiegen - regte vor dem Hintergrund eigener Erfahrungen in der politischen Auseinandersetzung die Gründung einer Stiftung mit folgenden Zielen an:

  • die politische und gesellschaftliche Bildung von Menschen aus allen Lebensbereichen im Geiste von Demokratie und Pluralismus zu fördern
  • begabten jungen Menschen unabhängig von den materiellen Möglichkeiten der Eltern durch Stipendien den Zugang zum Hochschulstudium zu ermöglichen
  • zur internationalen Verständigung und Zusammenarbeit beizutragen.
A Shared European Home

A Shared European Home. The European Union, Russia and the Eastern Partnership

The conflict in and around Ukraine has called into question the premises of the EU's Eastern Policy. In a new FES Perspective, eleven authors from the EU, Georgia, Russia and Ukraine advocate for a pragmatic policy of the EU vis-à-vis its eastern neighbours: The deep crisis in EU-Russia relations should not prevent Brussels from seeking cooperation in areas where mutual interests coincide. Opportunities exist in the economic sphere, in technical and scientific cooperation, in civil society exchange, and in global politics.

Economic cooperation is especially important in this regard: The interdepence between the EU and Russia could not prevent the conflict, but it played its role in preventing worse scenarios. Trade and mutual investments do not form a "magic wand" that guarantees friendly relations or modernization - but they can be seen as a "safety net" that should not be given up, and should be strengthened again as soon as the oppportunity arises.

The FES Perspective authored by Elena Alekseenkova, Henrik Hallgren, Hiski Haukkala, Felix Hett, Anna Maria Kellner, Igor Lyubashenko, Florence Mardirossian, Tatiana Romanova, Tornike Sharashenidze, Maryna Vorotnyuk, and Julia Wanninger can be downloaded here.

Europe Calling (#ec16fes): Politics for Europe Watch the Events of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung live

Financial crisis, economic crisis, refugee crisis: They are serving as centrifugal forces, polarising Europe and driving it apart. Recently, trust in the European Union and finding joint solutions for such central challenges has really suffered.

That makes it even more important to ask: What is keeping Europe together? And what progressive European policies can counter pessimism and legitimate worries with a positive alternative that is fit for the future?

With Europe Calling (#ec16fes), the Friedrich Ebert Foundation will address these questions and discuss them in Brussels (24th of February), Zagreb (24th of May), Athens (2nd of June), Düsseldorf (16th of June) and finally, in Berlin (20th of June). Europe Calling is developing ideas for a social, fair and free Europe. Become a part of it!

The 2015 Annual Reviews of Labour Relations and Social Dialogue for 17 countries in Central Eastern Europe and Southeast Europe are online!

The Annual Reviews provide a yearly analysis of important developments in the field of Labour Relations. Important data about collective bargaining system, system of tripartite social dialogue, social indicators, national trade unions and employers’ organizations for each country are gathered in the respective annex. For 2015, despite the economy picking up slowly again after the crisis, most country reports draw a rather grim picture of labour relations and the state of social dialogue in the region.
