Our Foundation named after the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Konrad Adenauer, is the largest political foundation in Germany and like-minded to the ruling Christian Democratic Party. Political foundations were created in the hope that they would contribute to the stabilization of young democracy in FRG. Foundations are an expression of political pluralism in Germany, building on the values of political parties close to them. Later, the German foundations have established international representations in order to strengthen the relations of Germany and the German people with other countries. Today, branches of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation are located in more than 120 countries around the world.
In Russia, the Representative Office of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation has been working in Russia for 30 years contributing to a productive dialogue between Russia and Germany in many areas. The Foundation cooperates with numerous Russian partners. These include the Supreme Courts of the Russian Federation, political parties, relevant ministries, universities, scientific institutions, and Russian Orthodox Church in the spirit of dialogue between Christian confessions as well as institutions of civil society. Together with our partners, we organize conferences, expert meetings and round tables aimed at discussing issues of mutual interest.
