Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Indonesia

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung established its Indonesia Representative Office in 1968. FES focuses on enhancing dialogue for mutual understanding and peaceful development in its international work. Social justice in politics, the economy and in the society is one of our leading principles worldwide.

The range of respective programs include: Social Security & Welfare State, Sustainable Pension Financing, Pro-Poor Budgeting, National Character Building, Economy of Tomorrow, Social Urban Development, Promoting the three dimension of sustainability within Indonesia´s development on national as well as on local level; promoting women empowerment; promoting inclusion of persons with disabilities into the labour market as well as promoting Indonesia as a reference to other countries in the region and at international level for democratization, socio-economic and peaceful development.

The Foundation's activities are conducted mostly in cooperation with the Partner Ministry Kemenko PMK (Coordinating Ministry of Human Development and Culture), other relevant state agencies, Universities and civil society organizations through various instruments such as conference, seminars, workshops, round-table discussions, trainings, role plays, scholarships and publications.

FES Indonesia also facilitates international dialogue by sending official delegations, experts, academics and senior journalists to Germany and overseas. Occasionally, we invite German and European policymakers, professionals as well as academics to give presentations in Indonesia.

Social Security & Welfare State

Social Security & Welfare State

In Indonesia one of the biggest welfare states worldwide is evolving. The National Social Security System (SJSN) is a national program aimed to ensure social protection for all Indonesian people – in the formal and informal sector. Under the SJSN, all people are prospectively expected to obtain sufficient protection against any loss of or reduction in their income as a result of illness, work accidents, advanced or retirement age and death. more

Social Transformation on City Level

Social Transformation on City Level

Sustainable Economic Development

Sustainable Economic Development

For an inclusive society and economy in Indonesia as well as elsewhere a balance between economic development, social justice and progress as well as ecological sustainability has to be defined. This transformation process has to be shaped politically and has to be broadly anchored within society. Issues like industrial policies and relations, the education system, just taxation and economic inequality play therefore an important role. more
