The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) Myanmar Office was officially established in 2014 even though activities in Myanmar have been implemented since 2005. Pursuant to the FES’s mandate to promote the values and ideas of social democracy, the FES Myanmar office promotes an inclusive and participatory reform process, a socially just society and enhanced peace and cooperation as core principles of the foreign policy of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar.
"International cooperation is far too important to be left to the governments alone"- Willy Brandt.
As a non-profit, private and cultural institution, we support activities of our Myanmar partners of all regional, cultural and social origins and cooperate with governmental institutions as well as with trade unions, research institutions and civil society organizations.
Together with other partners from FES Asia, the FES Myanmar Office seeks to understand the trends of globalisation, labour mobility and regional integration and work together on a socially just and sustainable development in the region.
