Konrad Adenauer and the Beginnings of the Konrad-Adenauer Stiftung's International Activities

by Peter Molt
The Institute for International Solidarity started its work in 1962. With an eye on Latin America, Konrad Adenauer opened up three new windows of opportunity as a means of making a German contribution to the global challenge: encouraging church social work via the church relief organisations; supporting value-based democratic reformists via the political foundations; and improving the effectiveness of foreign relations by institutionalising an independent development policy.
