The Drivers of the Mexican-German Strategic Cooperation for a Global Energy Transition Policy

Policy Paper

This policy paper aims to explain the drivers of the Mexican-German strategic cooperation for a global energy transition policy. Mexico has started its path towards energy transition while countries like Germany have already experience down the road. Therefore, it is convenient to learn from their challenges and opportunities, analyzing the similarities and differences with those countries so that Mexico can move forward more confidently towards its transition. Mexico should continue with the energy reform and private participation in the oil and gas sectors to attract more investment to the country. Strengthening the financial situation of Pemex is a requirement to contemplate new investments in refining. Attracting talent and investments is crucial for the Mexican energy sector’ competitiveness. This policy paper analyzes the Mexico-Germany strategic alliance´s benefits; common objectives pursued on a worldwide scale; and opportunities and challenges for Mexico in energy transition. In the end, policy recommendations are provided.

Open Series

"In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt"

Workshop Moderationstraining

Zum Auftakt des dreijährigen Projektes "In der Wesermarsch, aus aller Welt!' fand am Freitag und Samstag, 18. und 19. August, in Brake ein Workshop über Kommunikationsstrategien statt. Das Herrmann-Ehlers-Bildungsforum Weser-Ems fördert das Projekt und gestaltete den Auftaktworkshop mit dem Projektteam.  Als Referent führte Dr. Thomas Thielen durch das Programm, bei dem es um Interview-Schulungen, Übungen zur Moderation von Gesprächen und operativ aufmerksame Kommunikation ging. 


In dem Projekt geht es um Lebensgeschichten sowohl junger als auch älterer Menschen, die filmisch aufgezeichnet, dokumentiert und öffentlich präsentiert werden. Dabei sollen Generationen in den Dialog treten - für eine vielfältige und offene Gesellschaft. Im ersten Workshop wurde das Projektteam für diese Interviewsituationen geschult. Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmer kamen aus der Wesermarsch und umzu, zudem nahmen Schülerinnen und Schüler der Zinzendorfschule  aus Tossens teil. In dem zeitägigen Workshop wurde kreativ in Einzel- und Gruppenarbeit, in Simulationen die Interviewsituation geübt. Nach dem Workshop geht es im Projekt weiter mit ersten Interviews.

Country Reports with a Difference

Research on “Education of people with disabilities” around the world

People with disabilities are also among the most marginalised groups in the education system, and not only in the so-called developing countries. In recent years, it has become clear that education is one of the key prerequisites for sustainable development. Not least, the 2030 Agenda, with its guiding principle of “Leaving no one behind”, calls on us to focus our attention on this issue - also and especially in our work abroad.


What is the situation regarding access to education in the various countries in which we are active? To what extent do people with disabilities have the same access opportunities as non-disabled people? What difficulties do people face, what hurdles do they have to overcome and how can we, as a foundation, contribute to giving people with disabilities equal access to (‘civic’) education and to our programmes?


Our publication series “Country Reports with a Difference” aims to report on the current state of access to education for people with disabilities. Our overseas offices research the situation and developments in various countries. Through our reports, we can raise awareness of the inequalities that unfortunately still too often exist and bring more attention to the issue of inclusion.

Event Reports

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, its educational institutions, centres and foreign offices, offer several thousand events on various subjects each year. We provide up to date and exclusive reports on selected conferences, events and symposia at In addition to a summary of the contents, you can also find additional material such as pictures, speeches, videos or audio clips.
