Dialogue with inDia
in 2011 germany and india will celebrate the 60th anniversary of their establishment of diplomatic relations, and both countries will be able to look back on a long tradition of german-indian friendship. germany and india have many significant common interests which form the basis of a strategic partnership between the two countries. this is demonstrated by the “Joint Statement on the Strategic Partnership” and the “Joint Statement on the Further Development of the Strategic and global Partnership” agreed by Chancellor angela Merkel und Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. in addition to closer

consultation on pressing global political issues, the german-indian partnership is designed to promote a significant strengthening of cooperation on economic issues, development work, the environment, energy, education, science and technology and defence. india and germany have a common vision for the future based on peace and security, as well as similar fundamental views on a range of important global issues. they seek to promote universal values such as democracy, the rule of law, human rights and basic freedoms. it is these common values that form the basis of the political ties between germany and europe and the world’s biggest democracy and which make india an important partner in german and european foreign policy. without india’s active involvement there is unlikely to be any long-term success in the fight against international terrorism, or indeed in areas such as combating crime or nuclear non-proliferation. germany and india, neither of which currently have a permanent seat on the un Security Council, are also linked by a common goal to be allocated a permanent seat in the future. this underlines the desire of both countries to play a greater role on the international stage in the 21st century. these common values and shared views on political order are important prerequisites for the kind of wide-ranging growth in prosperity that is the aim of a social market economy. they provide a sound basis for the close trade ties that exist between germany and india. germany is in fact india’s most important trading partner within the eu and the indian market is becoming more and more important to germany. the success of the indian economy can be seen in its significant growth rates and in its rapid recovery from the recession triggered by the global financial and economic crisis. the growth

of the indian economy has meant that india now plays an important role in world trade organisation (wto) talks, as well as having a strong voice at forums such as the g20 meeting and the g8 discussions, to name but a few. the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung has set itself the goal of helping to consolidate the strategic partnership between india and germany in order to further strengthen bilateral ties between the two countries. the foundation has had representatives in india for more than 40 years and during this time it has been able to develop an extensive network of contacts which has built up trust and cooperation. Since we first started to work in india the country has been through enormous changes, and KaS has also had to adjust to these. this can be seen in the way that KaS’s main areas of activity have changed over time, with its initial focus on development moving more towards dialogue programmes on issues such as foreign and security policy, economic and energy policy, the rule of law and media policy. to mark the start of the Year of germany in india 2011/2012, we trust this country brochure will provide all the information you need on the key activities of KaS and its partners within india’s current political framework. we hope it will offer our readers a clear insight into our projects in india.

the KaS’ charter stipulates the task to elaborate the groundwork for the political working by means of research and consultancy. this is more than just giving advices on actual political questions. it means to research on the implications of modern democracies in nowadays time of media which includes preparing reforms by political education and to evolve to a foresighted policy which helps avoiding crisis beforehand. Currently the KaS hosts more than 200 projects in around 120 countries on four continents with with over 80 offices. Founded in 1962 as “institute for international Solidarity” the “Department for european and international Cooperation” is nowadays responsible for the international cooperation. in asia, further development of the rule of law, good the Department is based on two types of programs: governance and poverty reduction are in the focus of the foundation’s activities. in Central and Southeast asia, the KaS provides programs on the establishment and consolidation of democracy and the civil society, on conflict prevention and on the inter-religious dialogue. in latin america programmes strengthening democratic institutions, supporting young politicians, the dialogue on values, the role of the media, and the constitutional state have first priority. Considering the progresses in political liberalization, democratization and the respect of human rights in many countries of sub-Saharan africa the KaS intensified its programmes to directly take part in politics there. thus, a main focus is conflict transformation and capacity development, which are prerequisite for sustainable development in the region. the KaS has supported the countries of Central and eastern europe to overcome obstacles on their path to the eu membership as well as to remove economic and political backlogs by providing political expertise and educational training. the transformation process in these countries will continue to be reinforced by focusing on cooperation with political parties, in strengthening the civil society as well as in establishing a dialogue in common values with our partner network. in the near and Middle east the KaS contributes to the political, economical and social stabilization of the region and promotes democratic processes through a necessary decentralization of power. Besides, in its special programme “Dialogue with the islam” the KaS tries to identify similarities and differences between western democracies and the islamic world and to build a bridge for a common future. the CDu, established after a sudden wave of party formations in 1945, rose as “the Chancellor’s party” with adenauer to become the most successful party in german twentieth-century history. the reconstruction of west germany, overcoming the aftermath of the war, the choice of a social market economy and far-reaching socio-political decisions fell Besides Bonn and Berlin, the office in Brussels has become a third pillar of the Stiftung. the work of KaS in western europe and the uSa gives priority to deepening the transatlantic partnership as well as the dialogue with the european institutions and the european People’s Party. within adenauer’s time as Chancellor. the country programs and the regional sector programs. the country programs are based on fixed partner programs and flexible measures which are chosen by the delegated representative of the KaS in the respective country due to an analysis of demand and in cooperation with the partner organisations. with its regional sector programs, the KaS promotes a long term embodiment of structures that are based on the rule of law as well as a free and independent media in the project countries. the entrance of the Federal Republic into the circle of western democracies, the european integration project and the german-French reconciliation are inextricably bound to adenauer’s name. immediately after assuming his role as Chancellor, he formulated on behalf of the people of germany the intention to “rectify the injustice committed against the Jewish people to the greatest extent possible given the millions of lives that have been destroyed forever.” By means of its regional rule of law programs as well as the project “media and democracy”, the KaS supports the establishing of pluralistic societies in South eastern europe. through the offices in Moscow and Saint Petersburg the KaS stays in permanent dialogue with the political and academic elite in Russia as well as the Russian orthodox church. Konrad adenauer is the founding Chancellor of the Federal Republic of germany. the foundational policies set during his term as Chancellor (1949-1963) are still shaping the internal structure and foreign policy of the Federal Republic of germany today.

we are a political foundation with a strong presence throughout germany and all over the world. our foreign offices oversee 200 programmes in 120 countries. through our civic education programmes both at home and abroad we promote freedom, peace and justice. the principles of Konrad adenauer, first Federal Chancellor of germany, form our guidelines, the basis of our mission and engagement. the foundation took on his name in 1964. it had been established in 1955, and our headquarters are Berlin and Sankt augustin near the former federal capital Bonn. the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung is an association. inspired by democratic values, we work for the common good on a strictly non-profit basis. as the other political foundations in germany, we are organised under private law. in an independent, responsible, open-minded manner, we provide services which are in the public interest but cannot be supplied by the state. they are funded primarily by the federal government and local states. the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung relies on public fonds, event participation fees and other sources for funding, including private revenues (income from investments and donations).

in the first phase of operations from 1968 to the end of the eighties the joint activities of the KaS and its partners were concentrated on the then pressing developmental needs of india. insofar the projects covered rural development, poverty alleviation, technical training and skill development of the rural youth as well as the establishment of self-help groups for the disadvantaged sectors of society. Project cooperations the objective to build strategic working relationships on the political as well as the economic levels. Since its adoption the cooperation between india and the eu has further deepened. new challenges that have arisen since the formulation of the JaP have been accounted with its revision in 2008 at the ninth Summit to ensure further progress in the coming period and promote new activities like promoting peace and comprehensive security and sustainable development. after the lisbon treaty entered into force, the eleventh meeting in 2010 was the first summit under the new european Foreign and Security Policy.

india was one of the first asian countries to introduce country-related programmes initiated by the Konradadenauer-Stiftung (KaS). in more than 40 years of cooperation, a wide range of activities were undertaken at different levels: poverty alleviation in rural areas, capacity building of local government institutions, training for small and medium scale enterprises in north and South india, programmmes for judicial reforms, civil society initiatives and seminars related to the concept of rule of law. Various economic and value-oriented dialogues were held and high ranking exchanges on the subject of international relations and security policy have been established. the history of the activities of the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung in india reflects not only the changing priorities of the country’s development strategies but also india’s gradual rising political and economic status in the region as well as its emergence as a global power. From the early stages onwards it has been the endeaour of the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung to promote a greater understanding between europe and india as well as to widen and deepen the people-topeople links between germany, india and the eu.
the KaS wants to contribute to a broadened indogerman and indo-european dialogue, to sustain an exchange of ideas and experiences and, last but not least, to enhance the mutual visibility – beyond the government-to-government relations. india and europe have much in common. they share the same core values of democracy, pluralism, human rights, rule of law as well as the promotion of an independent judiciary and media. Both form stable examples of multi-lingual, multi-religious and multicultural societies. Furthermore, india and europe are both faced by global threats like climate change and non-proliferation and recognise their responsibilities in a world that needs better coordinated global governance. a strong and mutually benefitting partnership between europe and india will enable both partners to address these global challenges with more success. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh recognizes india and europe as natural partners. in the context of the eleventh eu-india-Summit he has stated that: “there is a high degree of convergence of our views on global issues. i will seek to deepen our political and strategic cooperation.” Being india’s largest trading partner, it is

the second phase from the end of the eighties till the beginning of the new millennium was characterised by an active enlargement of the projects. new training programs for the Panchayati Raj and elected village councils were taken up with the Centre for Rural entrepreneurship and technical education (CReate) in lucknow and the all india Santal welfare and Cultural Society (aiSwaCS) in west Bengal. Special attention was given to coalition building with rural ngo’s. Furthermore, training of trainers-programmes in pro-poor advocacy started with the independent Commission for Peoples Rights and Development (iCPRD) in new Delhi. in order to promote small and medium enterprises in india, to foster entrepreneurial start ups of new businesses and to bring them in line with the opening up of india’s new economic policy the KaS initiated additional projects with the PhD Chamber of Commerce and industry in new Delhi as well as the Madras Management association (MMa) in Chennai. Dialogues were conducted in cooperation with the Centre for Public affairs (CPa), the Rashtriya Jagriti Sansthan, the Society for Peace, Security and Development Studies and the institute for Defense Studies and analyses (iDSa). Furthermore, issues related to european integration were taken up with the Centre for european Studies of the Jawaharlal nehru university and the Delegation of the european Commission in Delhi. topics of indo-german relevance were dealt with in cooperation with the Federation of indogerman Sciences (FigS).
in the light of the ongoing changes and developments in india, the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung has intensified its programmes related to topics on eu-india relations in new Delhi and extended its activities to different parts of the country. a range of issues of mutual interest have been taken up through seminars, round table talks and dialogues with high ranking german individuals and european and indian politicians. Distinguished Members of the german, european and indian Parliaments have visited both countries. Furthermore, KaS has increased its collaboration with policy advisors, researchers from leading think-tanks and members from the civil society. Continuity and change have marked the engagement of the Konradadenauer-Stiftung in india. while the first programmes were based on a developmental approach, they advanced over the years into a comprehensive agenda of inclusive cooperation to take up newly emerging challenges. Most importantly, after four decades of active presence in india the KaS established a comprehensive network of partner organisations and strategic collaborations.

singly special position as a unique economic partner. over the years the india-eu relations have developed substantially and grown exponentially. the focus shifted from a purely trade and economic driven relationship, towards new forms of political and strategic partnership with growing areas of co-operation. the Fifth india-eu Summit in the hague on 8th november 2004 was historic in that respect because it endorsed the proposal to upgrade the india-eu relationship to the level of a ‘Strategic Partnership’. the following Sixth Summit in new Delhi a year later laid out a coherent framework comprising a ‘Joint action Plan’ (JaP) to attain the full potential of partnership and cooperation. it provides a concrete agenda and is the unique core of eu-india relations. the JaP emphasizes

Furthermore, institutions such as the C.R. irani Foundation to promote the Statesman School of Print Journalism joined the network of the indian partners of KaS. Specifically, the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung wants to contribute by: ■ assisting india in its process of social, structural and political transformation based on democracy, the rule of law and secularism; ■ strengthening economic reforms, the small and medium business sector and an effective market economy as well as supporting the integration of india into the global economy and the process of globalisation; ■ promoting local self-governance in rural areas and fostering grass roots democracy; ■ intensifying the dialogue between germany, europe in general and india as well as other major powers, especially on current foreign and security policy and ■ promoting the development of the media, especially the education of young print journalists. in addition to its activities in india, the Konradadenauer-Stiftung is equally expanding its engagement in South asia in the form of the SaaRC-Regional Project based in new Delhi. the Project focuses on current political topics in the areas of foreign and security policy, economic and energy politics, rule of law, and media with the aim of promoting the further integration of the SaaRC-region.

in 2003 the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung enhanced and partly restructured its country concept for india. Building upon past achievements successful projects were carried on and incorporated in new programmes and cooperations. in formulating the new concept the KaS took into consideration india’s emergence as a regional and global power, the increasingly important role that india plays across a wide range of global affairs as well as the deep rooted process of reform, transformation and change the country is still undergoing. the new concept is built on the “agenda for indo-german Partnership” of the year 2000 and integrated elements of the joint declaration of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and german Federal Chancellor angela Merkel (2006) on the “strategic partnership” to further deepen the bilateral relations between india and germany in various fields. nowadays, five working areas of the Foundation can be identified: 1. Foreign and Security Policy, 2. economic and energy Politics, 3. Rule of law, 4. Social and Political Change and local Self-government and 5. Media. For these purposes new partners have extended their cooperation, such as the institute for Peace and Conflict Studies (iPCS), the united Service institution of india (uSi), the Federation of indian Chambers of Commerce and industry (FiCCi), the energy and Resources institute (teRi), the indian Council for Research on international economic Relations (iCRieR), the Supreme Court Bar association (SCBa)

over the last 21 years, as many as 2,017 programmes with 102,160 participants have been held under the MMa-KaS partnership. these have benefited the participating organizations and individuals immensely. the history of the cooperation between MMa and the KaS constitutes years of dedication to vitalize a key sector of india’s economy, namely, the Small and Medium enterprises. the MMa-KaS partnership aims to strengthen the SMe sector in india by creating a better climate for the SMe sector by enabling capacity building and increase of productivity in the SMe segment, by improving their management practices and governance, and by creating awareness amongst government and policy makers for the improvement of the legal and regulatory framework of the SMe sector in india. MMa developed the widely recognised instrument of so called “regional conclaves”. in these conferences South indian business experts and owners of SMes debate current topics, such as the consequences of the financial and economic crisis and they express their expectations to political leaders on the state and national level for sustainable growth and monetary policies. MMa believes this approach for strengthening the SMe sector is in line with india’s national development strategies and the KaS’ views on accelerating economic and social development.

Both Central and State governments consult PhD Chamber before announcing or formulating any major economic or industrial policy. it produces well researched background and policy papers on topical issues to initiate informed debate and discussion. PhD Chamber provides information on business opportunities abroad and a platform to interact with visiting foreign business delegations. the Chamber is globally connected through institutional linkages with over 60 important foreign Chambers of Commerce. the PhD Chamber and the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung came together in May 1989 when a Seminar on “the Role of SMe’s in export Development” was jointly organized. this event was instrumental in making them realize the commonality of their views on entrepreneurship development and the importance of a vibrant SMe sector for the economic development of india. as a result, the Partner Project between PhD Chamber and Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung was formed in 1990 with the approval of the indian union Ministry of home affairs. the basic philosophy behind the Project is that only individual initiative and entrepreneur spirit can help building up self reliance and sustainable growth. Small and medium enterprises are important in this context, not merely because they are the backbone of any economy but they can help to further establish inclusive development. SMes play an important role in generating employment, optimizing deployment of local and regional resources as well as bringing about balanced regional growth. in the last 20 years, the

teRi is a dynamic and flexible organization with a global vision and a local focus. it was established in 1974. initially, the focus of the institute was on documentation and information dissemination. Research activities in the fields of energy, environment, and sustainable development were initiated towards the end of 1982. all these activities were rooted in teRi’s firm conviction that efficient utilization of energy, sustainable use of natural resources, largescale adoption of renewable energy technologies and reduction of all forms of waste would move the process of development towards the goal of sustainability. teRi is deeply committed to every aspect of sustainable development, and emphasis has always been placed on finding innovative solutions to make the world a better place to live. although teRi’s vision is global, its roots are firmly entrenched in indian soil. all activities in teRi move from formulating local- and national-level strategies to shaping global solutions to critical energyand environment-related issues. in its endeavour to shape global solutions, teRi has collaborated with likeminded institutes and organizations across the world. the Konrad adenauer Stiftung and teRi have enjoyed a fruitful and mutually beneficial collaboration over the last five years in the critical area of energy security. teRi and the KaS have worked closely together on a very successful annual international energy dialogue.

the Centre for Public affairs (CPa) was established in 1993. to make strategic interventions in diverse debates CPa conducts seminars, research studies and commission working papers with specific foci on relevant themes. its priority areas are: institutions, governance (both unit-based and multi-level), pluralism and sectarianism, education and human resource development, social development and voluntary sector, norms and ethics in public life, intra- and inter-country migrations, peace and conflict resolution, and regional and global security. CPa’s objective is to develop a body of knowledge to provide policy choices on issues of public affairs. its understanding of public affairs encompasses a complex gamut of concerns around which the state and the public interact, cooperate, bargain and at times even conflict with each other. these concerns include public policies, societal pressures as well as citizens’ initiatives that are either developed as inputs to or as outputs of those policies. CPa assigns particular importance to citizens’ initiatives and the expansion of civil society initiatives. this dimension of public affairs has lately assumed greater salience because of people’s growing awareness about their rights and their fear of losing them to arbitrary new policies of the state. the phenomenon is global and CPa contributes to the discourse. CPa works with a team of networked scholars both within the country and outside. the members of its governing board, all of whom are either academics or persons with academic interests, have been contributing to CPa’s academic endeavour since its inception. CPa’s major academic programmes that consists of workshops, seminars and studies began in collaboration with the KaS in 2000. a publication on “the indian Parliament”, a monograph on “terrorism and the Rule of law: an indian Perspective”, a project on “Parties and Democracy in india: emerging and Future trends”, a monograph on “emergence of Regional Parties in india: implications for national Parties, Policies and the Democratic System” and a study on the recent developments of the indian political party system has been undertaken.

the belief in partnership is one of the fundamental principles of the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung. this common ground led to the now 27 years old KaSJSDP Partner network in india. the underlying idea was that the directors and staff of the KaS partners should come together for annual meetings in order to exchange experiences, to learn from each other and to take up issues of common interest. the JSDP meetings soon developed not only into a platform for interaction and network building but also strengthened the unifying ties of different institutions and highlighted what they have in common. in this way the Joint Staff Development Programme (JSDP) evolved into a unique group of like-minded institutions, which is without precedent in india. all have been partners of the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung – in the past or at present. all are ngos, involved in developmental activities, training-oriented and almost all are active on the ground. the JSDP partners are located in different geographical areas, they cover all regions of india. the JSDP Partner network sets an example of the vivid and strong indian civil society. the uniting bonds of this mutual engagement have been based on democratic values and on the belief of social and economic development. the permanent members of the JSDP network are: all india Santal welfare and Cultural Society (aiSwaCS), Centre for Rural entrepreneurship and technical education (CReate), Center for environment and Socio economic Regeneration (CeSR), institute of Youth and Development (iYD), indian institute of Youth welfare (iiYw), indian Society for Community education (iSCe), Madras Management association (MMa), PhD Chamber of Commerce and industry (PhD), Ramakrishna Mission (RKM), KalYan, independent Commission for People’s Right and Development (iCPRD), Vishwa Yuvak Kendra (VYK) and Yuvak Vikas trust (YVt).

india and germany have traditionally enjoyed close ties in the political, economic, cultural and development policy sphere. Both nations strive to nurture these ties; consequently relations are on a sound footing, flanked by 60 years of bilateral engagement.2 the foundations of this relationship are built on shared values and a convergence of interests.3 a series of high-ranking visits have enhanced the indo-german bilateral relations considerably. the most recent exchanges have included the visit of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to germany in 2006, when india was the partner country at the hanover industrial fair, in 2007 when Singh was in germany again for the g8+5 heiligendamm Summit and the meeting with Chancellor angela Merkel in 2010 in Berlin after the eleventh eu-india Summit. Federal Chancellor Merkel visited india in 2007 and former german Federal President horst Köhler travelled to the subcontinent in early 2010. in 2011, india and germany celebrate the 60th anniversary of bilateral relations with a “Year of germany in india 2011-2012”. the existing political ties are constantly being consolidated and enhanced through new agreements and treaties. thus, the “agenda for indo-german Partnership in the 21st Century” adopted in May 2000 addresses areas to further deepen the bilateral relations between india and germany. Manmohan Singh and angela Merkel supplemented this agenda with a “Joint Declaration” on strategic partnership in 2006. apart from a closer coordination of regional and global policies the Declaration refers to issues such as combating terrorism, climate change, disarmament and the reform of the united nations. it also envisages a significant

stepping up of economic cooperation and collaboration in the fields of energy, science and technology. a “Joint Declaration on the Further Development of a Strategic and global Partnership” was adopted on the occasion of angela Merkel’s visit to india one year later. after their meeting
in 2010, Merkel stated that “we have set ambitious goals, for example to increase foreign trade to 20 billion euros by 2012,” which is a challenge considering the current trade volume of around 13 billion euros. Singh remarked after the meeting that “the sky is the limit for our cooperation,” praising india’s “excellent” relations with germany.

the Konrad-adenauer-Stiftung supports and complements its work in india by organizing relevant visiting and education programmes in germany. the dialogue with political parties and the parliament forms the thematic focus of the study and exchange programmes. Further focus
india and germany have formed close economic links over the past decades of cooperation. within the eu, germany is india’s biggest trading partner. economic ties between both countries have intensified and become more dynamic in recent years. germany largely exports machinery, chemical and electrical products, aircraft, precision equipment and optical goods. From india germany imports textiles, chemical products, leather goods, food items, iron and ironware as well as automobiles. Despite the rapid progress it has made in recent years, india continues to be a developing nation with vast disparities between rich and poor. there is also a huge urban-rural divide. to overcome these disparities the german government has, for over 50 years, been working on the issues of environmental and resource protection as well as energy and sustainable development. this cooperation is commissioned by the Federal Ministry for economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and implemented by the Foreign Ministry and Reconstruction Credit institute (Kfw) with regard to investments and by the gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (giZ) with regard to advisory services.4 in addition to the german Foreign Ministry, the political foundations – among them the Konrad-adenauerStiftung – also play an important role in german foreign policy towards india. For over 40 years the KaS has been engaged in fostering bilateral relations
between the two countries. the focus areas and objectives of the KaS india Country Programme and SaaRC regional cooperation emerge from a highly nuanced overall concept that takes into account india’s complexity and the heterogeneity of its regions. germany and india acknowledge the special significance of contacts between their parliamentarians and favor an augmentation of these contacts for shaping the relations between both countries. Both sides also consider it meaningful to intensify the indo-german dialogue at the non-governmental level. the same is true of cooperation between india and the european union. Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Chancellor angela Merkel have agreed on this within the framework of their strategic partnership. the KaS has been pro-active in ensuring the continuity and intensification of the dialogue between india, germany and the eu. it is in the interests of both germany and india to combat and find solutions to the prime challenges in the security sector. a dialogue about the concrete implementation of measures can be conducted within a bilateral, regional as well as international format. on-going efforts need to be made to build trust between the actors. the KaS makes a significant contribution in this context. it is one of the declared goals of the Foundation to work towards upholding and fostering the shared values between india and germany. it requires the commitment of social forces at all levels to secure these liberal democratic achievements and pass them on to future generations.

areas include programmes for legal experts on issues such as constitutional and administrative jurisdiction, combating corruption and internal security. the broad range of issues on which the KaS works globally is reflected in the programmes, that encompass areas such as the inter-faith dialogue, promotion of independent media, local self government and the concept of social market economy. in 2010 a study and information programme on current issues pertaining to indo-german and indo-european relations was conducted in Berlin, Strasbourg and Brussels for members of parliament from india. Similarly, young indian journalists – graduates of the Statesman School of Journalism – were able to acquaint themselves with germany’s media landscape at the invitation of the KaS. indian experts also participated in a seminar in germany on “social market economy” for political leaders from asia, and india was represented at both the annual international law Conference organized by the KaS in Bonn and the regularly held international “Summer School” for young politicians. the KaS’ scholarship department provides assistance to talented researchers from india in the areas of public policy, economics, science and media as well as in the spheres of culture and association work. By doing so the Foundation is investing not just in the future of these young people but also in india’s future. loyalty, commitment, teamwork and identification with the values of the KaS are the Foundation’s key criteria for awarding scholarships. the KaS’ Country Programme team also awards scholarships to support the worldwide activities of the Foundation. these scholarships are given for study within the home country or a neighbouring country and, in individual cases, even in germany. the scholarships are intended for individuals associated with KaS’ projects who are likely to be effective as multipliers in society and in the political sphere. there is a special emphasis here on promoting journalists as well as political scientists and economists.
