Since 2006 the Heinrich Böll Foundation is once again represented in Addis Ababa. The country office currently supports networking among civil society organisations in Ethiopia in the areas of environmental policy and promotion of women. New media and the arts are used to complement traditional activities in public education such as radio programmes, printed publications and conferences.

The activities of the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Ethiopia have been severely restricted by new laws and regulations on the work of non-governmental organisations. In particular, activities promoting processes of democratisation have been outlawed since 2010.

Director of the office: Patrick Berg
