The International Reports and Communication department in the European and International Cooperation division is responsible for the International Reports (Ai) of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), a journal on international issues, foreign policy and development cooperation published four times a year. In addition to the printed edition, the Ai also offer an information platform on the international work of our over 100 Foundation offices on the website www.auslandsinformationen.de.
Freedom of the press and freedom of opinion are fundamental prerequisites for the functioning of a democracy and thus a focal point of our work abroad, which finds expression in the form of international media programmes at our offices in Johannesburg, Singapore and Sofia. The International Reports and Communication department is responsible for the coordination of these activities, as well as for the annual F.A.Z.-KAS debate organised jointly with the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper, the aim of which is to give greater weight to important discussions on foreign policy issues in Germany.
The department is also the point of contact for our Foundation offices and consults and supports them in the areas of social media strategies and multimedia formats.
