On 19 July the Inclusive Society Institute through its international rapporteur, Dr Klaus Kotzé, met with Ms Britta Utz of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) at their headquarters in Berlin, Germany. During a fruitful conversation, the two representatives exchanged insights and discussed the ongoing activities of their respective organisations.
They agreed to maintain their existing partnership and build upon their previous exchanges. They reaffirmed their support to domestic and international democracy and to assist each other in the important task of building multilateralism shaped by solidarity and increased partnership. In concluding their discussion, the ISI invited the FES to partake in its end-of-year conference which will be based on the topic of building resilient democracy in South Africa and around the world.
