Academy for Social Democracy

Freedom, Justice and Solidarity - The Academy

The Academy for Social Democracy is an advisory and educational resource of the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation for people interested in and committed to politics. We offer the opportunity to reflect and learn about core values and main issues of 21st century Social Democracy. Our claim is “Politics requires a clear sense of direction” and our symbol is a compass.

Read Dr. Christian Krell's article on "Imparting expertise in the Akademie für Soziale Demokratie" for further information.

International cooperation

Our formats are mostly designed for the German public but we firmly believe that Social Democracy is a universal and international idea. It is borne by the conviction that the conflict between labour and capital shapes the political debate and reality not only in one country, but in all countries. In a time of internationally interwoven economies, global challenges and world-encompassing communication networks, this is more pertinent than ever. Hence, we are very interested in exchanging thoughts and concepts about Social Democracy worldwide.

Translated Social Democracy Readers

The Social Democracy Readers offer the opportunity to approach various subject areas independently. They are clear in language, well-founded in their analysis and offer approaches from theory and practice. In a concise and understandable way, you will find a solid introduction to the broad lines and controversies of each individual seminar topic. The Social Democracy Readers are not only suitable for the preparation and follow-up of the respective seminars, but also for an independent approach to the topic. Use your chance to sharpen your own argumentation skills and to orientate yourself in basic questions of Social Democracy!
