50 Years Democracy and Freedom Worldwide

European and International Cooperation of KAS

This year Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) celebrates its 50th anniversary. This publication reflects on KAS activities worldwide and thus provides a unique insight into the most important international political developments over the last half-century.

“The political foundations, as they are today,were not designed according to a particular plan, but have taken on their present-day form in the course of their work over the last decades; we can say they have not been made but have grown in line with what has been needed. They have gained respect both at home and abroad. They represent a remarkable achievement for Germany’s political culture.”

Letter from Bruno Heck to Peter Molt, 1989
