Since 2004 the FES has engaged in supporting and consolidating the democratization process in Iraq. FES is intensively supporting building public institutions, strengthening the civil society and promoting Human Rights in Iraq.
The aim of the activities of FES Iraq is promoting democracy and political participation, supporting progress towards social justice and gender equality, as well as contributing to ecological sustainability for peace and security in Iraq and the region.
From 2004 onwards, the Amman Office also coordinates the activities of FES in Iraq. At the origin of the Iraq projects were the support for the constitutional process and assistance in the development of new media outlets, as well as an extensive engagement in the training of Iraqi election monitors. Over the years, FES has extended its network of local partners and has broadened the scope of its activities in Iraq.
