Just like any institution, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung relies primarily on its committed employees.

The foundation currently employees some 1,600 people; 650 of which work in Germany, mainly in our headquarters in Berlin, but also in Sankt Augustin and in our political educational forums and regional offices. More than 100 colleagues are active in our over 100 offices around the world, where we also employ in excess of 900 local employees.

If you wish to get in contact with one of our experts, you’ll find all the information you need here with a selection of the most important contact partners on our topics as well as the division heads. Don't hesitate to get in touch.
