The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) office in Sri Lanka was established in 1965. FES supports building and strengthening civil society and public institutions. At the center of our work is the promotion of democracy and social justice, economic and social development, strong and free trade unions, and the advocacy of human rights and gender equality. FES supports policy dialogue and enhances participation in political processes.
FES co-operates with a number of governmental institutions, trade unions, political parties, social movements, NGOs, media and scientific institutions, as well as international organizations.
