Konrad-Adenuauer-Stiftung Büro Berlin Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung e. V. / Juliane Liebers
Headquarters of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Berlin

This and the following subpages will reveal more about the basic organisational structures of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the people who bring it to life.

The foundation’s statute places responsibility in the hands of three central committees:

  • The General Assembly is the supreme governing body of the foundation: it elects the Board of Directors as well as consulting and deciding on the working guidelines of the foundation.
  • The Board of Directors conducts the foundation’s business activities and manages its assets.
  • The Board of Trustees advises and supports the Board of Directors with the planning and implementation of its tasks.

The most important institution of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung are its employees; their commitment is what defines the foundation’s work. The Works Council represents their interests vis-à-vis the employer.

The Youth Advisory Board also provides impetus for the foundation’s work, which, since 2013, has raised the foundation’s awareness of and consulted it specifically on the interests of pupils, trainees, students and young adults, as well as the Women’s Council.


Working Groups

In order to present specialists with a forum for exchange, discussion and, above all, for developing approaches for future political challenges, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung has established three working groups:

  • The Working Group of Young Foreign Policy Experts would like to contribute towards a new culture of foreign policy in Germany.
  • The Working Group Terrorism and Domestic Security aims at creating stronger links between the issues of domestic and external security, counter-terrorism and the prevention of extremism.
  • The Working Group Global Health is focused on the development and protection of a global health architecture.


The KAS Fellowship

Our mission is to keep improving in our work. That also entails critically questioning our own actions. The annual KAS Fellowship helps us to do just that. With this, we pursue the goal of each year integrating an important person and their external perspective into the foundation’s work. The selection of experts for the fellowship is motivated by interdisciplinary considerations, and aims to influence the tasks and content of our projects through forward-looking voices from society, but also those that give words of warning.


Circle of Friends

In the KAS Circle of Friends, some 1,600 politically interested people affiliated with the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung have come together and support it with further developing and strengthening our society’s fundamental Christian democratic values.
