Our Partners

Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) may initiate its own original projects, or it may also act as co-organizer, initiate projects in collaboration with its partner organizations. FES does not consider itself as a funding agency and does not directly transfer financial aid to its partner organizations. It shares responsibilities, workload and resources at all stages of the projects. FES aims to act as a "think and do tank" worldwide.

We as FES Turkey organize a variety of diverse events such as conferences, panel discussions, roundtable meetings, seminars, trainings, workshops and we support research projects and publications.

In our projects we work together with professional associations, foundations, national and international trade unions, civic movements, advocacy NGOs, research institutions, policy think tanks, media organizations, universities, regional and international organizations, governmental institutions, political parties, municipalities and parliaments.
