Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Brazil
The Konrad Adenauer Foundation (KAS) is an independent, non-profit German political foundation which acts nationally and internationally for peace, justice and freedom. Our main mission is to defend democracy and promote the social market economy based on the values of Christian democracy. In addition, we seek to strengthen transatlantic relations through international cooperation, and to this end we have more than 107 offices worldwide. We focus our work on key themes such as innovation, representation and participation, and security.
We have been operating in Brazil since 1969 and we concentrate our activities on four thematic topics: Political Education, promoting citizens’ participation in politics; Rule of Law and Public Policies, which trains multipliers on themes such as Human Rights and Democracy; Sustainable Development and Decentralisation, where we promote meetings with local leaders and mandate holders in order to promote good governance and sustainability; and Global Challenges, where we stimulate relations not only between Europe and Latin America, but also between Brazil and Germany, under the prism of cooperation and international relations.

Brazilian Center for International Relations
The Brazilian Center for International Relations (CEBRI) is an independent think tank that contributes to building an international agenda for Brazil. For over twenty years, the institution has engaged in promoting a pluralistic and proposal-oriented debate on the international landscape and Brazilian foreign policy. Its activities are conducted in 14 thematic programs, which focus on themes and regions relevant to Brazil. In its actions, CEBRI prioritizes themes with the greatest potential to leverage the country’s international insertion into the global economy, proposing pragmatic solutions for the formulation of public policies. It is a non-profit institution, headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, and in 2020, it was elected the second-best think tank in South and Central America in the ranking coordinated by the University of Pennsylvania. Today, its circa 100 associates represent diverse interests and economic sectors and mobilize a worldwide network of professionals and organizations. Moreover, CEBRI has an active Board of Trustees composed of prominent members of Brazilian society.
