Democratization requires a political process, in which all groups of society participate. FES Amman promotes open political discussion, supports the efforts of civil society organizations and furthers active participation of previously marginalized groups such as women and youth. A prerequisite for active participation is information. FES thus aims to contribute to the strengthening of independent media. In addition, FES facilitates regular dialogue between political decision-makers and experts from Germany and the Middle East.
The Focus of Our Work
Social justice is a key factor for inclusive growth and political stability in the Middle East. Together with its partners, FES Amman works towards shaping political and economic processes according to the principles of social justice and tackling challenges such as unemployment. FES also cooperates with local, regional and global trade unions and their federations.
