FES in Sudan has been promoting the values of social democracy, political pluralism, and good governance for many years. Since the revolution of 2019, the fall of the oppressive al-Bashir regime and the beginning of a several year transition under a joint civilian and military interim government, strengthening political parties and working towards democratic elections has become another focus. Towards these goals FES is organizing expert workshops and debate forums on a broad range of topics such as constitutional development, political party reform, social justice, peace, and democratic elections. One of its projects in this regard is the yearly School of Social Democracy, a several day camp for young Sudanese from civil society, parties, and governmental institutions. Fostering gender equality and gender justice are cross-cutting issues of FES’ work.
