The Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung is a global network of more than 30 offices worldwide. Once a month, we will present you in this section one of our offices and its work.
Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung Southern Afrika has been actively promoting the consolidation of democracy in Southern Africa since 1989. For many organisations and individuals the Foundation has become a partner for civic education and formation of networks, provider of international contacts, observer and analyst in the region.
Despite this progress, the region faces enormous and challenging problems which might endanger consolidation of the still unstable democracies. The Foundation aims to provide spaces for constructive dialogue and exchange between non-governmental organizations and democratic institutions. In doing so the Foundation seeks to improve civil society participation in decision making processes and make a valuable contribution to the acceptance of democracy.
