Welcome to KAS Malaysia (KASMY)

Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is a German non-profit, non-governmental and independent Think Tank with offices in more than 120 countries worldwide. The basic principles underlying our work are freedom, solidarity, an the rule of law.

For over four decades, KAS Malaysia has actively collaborated with numerous excellent local partners in the fields of sustainable economic development, representation and participation of women and youth, as well as inclusion. Also, we strive to enhance regional and international cooperation by facilitating the exchange of expertise and fostering collaboration among global experts and decision-makers. In implementing our projects and programmes, KAS Malaysia works in partnership with Malaysian organisations, such as think tanks, training institutions, government agencies and non-governmental institutions.

Our programme priorities in Malaysia include:

  • Social and economic transformation
  • Sustainable economic development
  • Representation and participation of women and youth as well as inclusion
  • Bilateral and international relations
  • Exchange on regional geopolitical issues (such as trade, security, climate change and energy security)

Our initiatives are exclusively funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. Thus, our efforts contribute significantly to the bilateral cooperation between Germany and Malaysia.



Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Germany and globally

Since its establishment in 1955, KAS has been committed to promoting freedom, solidarity, and the rule of law in Germany and around of the world. KAS shares ideological proximity with the CDU of Germany.

Our work ties in deeply with the legacy of Konrad Adenauer (1876-1967), the first Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. His name has become synonymous with the democratic reconstruction of Germany, the firm alignment of foreign policy with the trans-Atlantic community and its values, the vision of a unified Europe, and an orientation towards social market economy. Today, his intellectual heritage continues to serve as both our guiding principle and our solemn obligation.

Within our European and International Cooperation department, our focus is on empowering individuals to lead self-determined lives in freedom and dignity. In our commitment to fostering peace and freedom, we actively advocate for and foster continuous dialogues and exchanges at both national and international levels.

Human beings, in their distinctive dignity, rights, and responsibilities are at the heart of our work. We are driven by the conviction that human beings are the starting point in the pursuit of social justice and democratic freedom, alongside the promotion of sustainable economic activities. By bringing together those who embrace their societal responsibilities, we foster dynamic networks across all spheres and within society as a whole. Through our partnership-based cooperation, we aspire to shape the globalisation process in a manner that is more socially equitable, ecologically sustainable and economically efficient. Together with our partners, we strive to contribute towards the establishment of an international order that allows every country to develop in freedom and under its own responsibility. With our efforts, we contribute to Germany meeting its growing responsibilities throughout the world.
