About Us

The KAS New York office opened its doors in 2016 as part of the foundation´s Multinational Development Dialogue program. The office serves as a liaison between KAS offices with their experts and local partners and the United Nations. Although the New York office focuses on the world organization as a whole, these four topics are at the center of the foundation´s work in New York:
  1. Foreign- and Security Policy, conflict management
  2. Development policy
  3. Policy on climate change and energy security
  4. Rule of law

The KAS New York office regularly hosts dialog programs with experts from the KAS offices all over the world, including talks, discussions, workshops and conferences to enhance the exchange of ideas between the foundation´s network of partners and experts and different UN bodies, but also with national and international think tanks, NPOs and universities in New York. In addition, these programs provide discussions on most relevant topics to an interested audience in New York.

Furthermore, we also elaborate position papers and analysis about the work of the UN to provide our field offices and partners and the interested general public with first-hand information about the world organisation.
