Ex Oriente Lux

The Work of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Central and Eastern Europe

Also available in Deutsch

When the Eastern Bloc collapsed in the 1989, its countries started to open up, providing an opening for our work. The main focus of our activities was the creation of KAS offices in former communist spheres of influence. The launching point for the expansion of our office network in Central and Eastern Europe was our existing office in Vienna. Today we have over 18 offices in these countries of which 15 are full KAS offices and three are liaison offices.
