Annual Report 2012 | Perspectives 2013

Mar. 21, 2013

Also available in Deutsch

Our 2012 report highlights a variety of issues where the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung is called upon to help solve problems, and contribute to a better understanding and the acceptance of change. That includes the switch to renewable energy, the European debt crisis and upheaval across North Africa and the Middle East. We have also written about many longer-term issues and showcase our 2013 slogan "Perspectives for Young People", which guides many of our projects this year.
