Working Groups

With its working groups, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung not only bundles and consolidates expertise on relevant topics of its ongoing work; it also helps to facilitate the exchange between relevant experts in the field. The working group meetings therefore constitute a useful platform for scientific- and political debate among the various participants (e.g. members, external experts).

The regularity of the meetings guarantees frequent exchanges, and ensures the quality and relevance of certain topics within the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.


Working Group Global Health

Global health is a highly interconnected and relevant policy field for ensuring development and security worldwide. Health threats - no matter where in the world they may arise – easily transcend borders and thus pose a direct impact on the entire healthcare sector in Germany. In its Global Health Working Group, the Konrad Adenauer Foundation brings together relevant stakeholders ranging from politics, academia, civil society to the private sector to exchange views on current issues and challenges in global health policy.


Working Group of Young Foreign Policy Experts

The Working Group of Young Foreign Policy Experts offers young foreign policy experts a forum for developing solutions to current political challenges. Thematically, the broad range of topics extends from European policy to transatlantic relations, security and defense policy to economic, technology and development policy.


Working Group Terrorism and Domestic Security

The Working Group Terrorism and Domestic Security is a network of young experts in the field of counterterrorism and homeland security. The members come together to exchange ideas and develop new answers to current political issues. The focus of the working group's substantive work is particularly on the threat posed by right-wing extremism and Islamist extremism and terrorism.
