Deutsche Afrika Stiftung e.V.
The German Africa Foundation (DAS) offers a platform for exchange between German and African actors. Hereby, we particularly focus on the parliamentary arena. Within the framework of expert discussions, parliamentary breakfasts and panel discussions, we bring together members of the German Bundestag, ministries and other political decision-makers from Germany and Africa.
With our events, we place current issues relevant to Africa policy in the political arena and provide impulses for German Africa policy. At the same time, we promote the greater involvement of representatives of both the African diplomatic corps and the African diaspora and work to convey a differentiated image of Africa in the political arena and to the German public.
