The FES Sudan Office was officially established in 1976. Pursuant to the global FES mandate, it promotes the values of social democracy such as peace, democracy, human rights, and just socio-economic development. The work of FES in Sudan is financed by the German Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Additionally, FES Sudan receives project-specific funding from the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs (AA) and from other third-party donors such as the EU.
"International cooperation is far too important to be left to governments alone." Willy Brandt
The FES in Sudan strives to enable societal groups to articulate their interests by strengthening their capacities to participate in social and political discourses. Fostering gender equality is of particular significance in this process. We support activities of Sudanese partners of all regional, cultural and social origins, and cooperate with governmental institutions, universities, trade unions, media institutions, and civil society organizations.
Officially established in 1976, the FES promotes peace, democracy, social justice, gender equality, and human rights in collaboration with a broad range of Sudanese non-governmental and governmental partners. Since the revolution of 2019, it supports the efforts of civil society partners and the transitional government in bringing reforms and working towards democratic elections.
The activities of FES Sudan aim at promoting democracy, good governance, and the political participation of the civil society. Cross-cutting issues are social justice and gender equality as well as at contributing to.
FES Sudan cooperates with a wide range of local partners, including from the civil society and the political sphere. It supports its partners in their endeavors and itself offers platforms for dialogue and debate, organizes conferences and workshops, and publishes policy papers on current Sudanese issues.
