Welcome to FES Egypt

Inspired by its general aims to promote democracy and social justice, to support economic and social development, as well as to advocate for human rights and gender equality, the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) started working in Egypt in 1976. The office operates in cooperation with local partners within the framework of an agreement with the Egyptian government. This agreement was endorsed by Presidential Decree 139/1976 and by the Egyptian parliament. The agreement was renewed in 1988, endorsed by Presidential Decree 244/1989 and approved by the Egyptian parliament. more
