Welcome to the website of FES Japan

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest political foundation in Germany with a rich tradition in social democracy dating back to its foundation in 1925. The foundation owes its formation and its mission to the political legacy of its namesake Friedrich Ebert, the first democratically elected German President.

Apart from political education within Germany, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is active in more than 100 countries worldwide. The Tokyo office was founded in 1967 and is part of the foundation’s section “International Dialogue.” Furthermore, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung is a member of the European Network of Political Foundations (ENOP). Japan is Germany’s most important partner in Asia.
