The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung established its Indonesia Representative Office in 1968. Especially since 1998, we have been carrying out various activities to support the process of democratisation and social economic development of Indonesia.
The range of issues includes democratisation, good governance, judicial reform, promotion of human rights, conflict resolution, security sector reform, fair and free media, social issues, labour issues, and gender issues. Since 2006, FES Indonesia is also involved in Aceh's peace and democratisation process. Starting 2013 FES Indonesia will have some changes in its working program by focusing on sustainable development.
The Foundation's activities are conducted mostly in collaboration with relevant state agencies and local non-governmental organisations through various events such seminars, workshops, round-table discussions, trainings and publications.
