About us - Jordan Office
Freedom, justice and solidarity are the basic principles underlying the work of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS). The KAS is a political foundation, closely associated with the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU). As co-founder of the CDU and the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany, Konrad Adenauer (1876-1967) united Christian-social, conservative and liberal traditions.
Since 1982, Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung has been present with its office in Jordan, where it promotes democracy, political parties, civil society, the Jordanian media and journalists, the social market economy and regional security.
Our main areas of focus are the following:
- Political Parties
- Jordan as a mediator in the region
- Transnational Islamism and Prevention
- Economic Development and Entrepreneurship
Moreover, it is our goal to especially engage and empower the youth. For this reason, we offer three types of Youth Academies:
- Journalists’ Academies
- Foreign Policy Academies
- Political Party Youth
