On 1 April 1989 the UN-monitored transition period towards Namibia’s independence began, leading firstly to elections for the Constituent Assembly in November 1989 and ultimately to independence in March 1990. The start of this transition was the signal for the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung to decide on the establishment of an office in Windhoek and later in the year deploy its first country representative, Mr Peter Schellschmidt.

Welcome to FES Namibia

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest of Germany’s ‘political foundations‘ and committed to the basic values of social democracy and the labour movement.

As a private, non-profit educational institution, ‘think tank’ and platform for political dialogue, its mission is to promote democracy, development, social justice and peace through capacity-building, policy research, public dialogue and international exchange.

FES carries out its international activities through a network of currently about 100 offices world-wide, in combination with its headquarters in Berlin and Bonn/Germany and in close co-operation with its local and international partners.

The FES office in Namibia was established in 1989 on the eve of the Namibian independence. At present it is staffed with one expatriate and six local full-time employees. (Read more….)
