The Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) is an association of governmental organisations, church development agencies, civil society networks, and political foundations. FriEnt aims to pool capacities, support networking and cooperation, and contribute to conflict-sensitive development cooperation.
The FES' core fields of activity are: Civic Education and a scholarship program in Germany as well as international cooperation with regard to democracy support and international dialogue activities. In both our democracy support and international policy dialogue programs, issues of peacebuilding are adressed.
The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is a German political foundation dedicated to the values of social democracy and social justice. It was founded in 1925 as the political legacy of Germany's first democratically elected president, the social-democrat Friedrich Ebert. Our mandate is to strenghten democracy, social justice and peaceful conflict resolution within and between societies.
