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 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.
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:
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.
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.
