About us

Stiftung Asienhaus raises awareness and supports causes of civil society organizations in Indonesia through information and advocacy work. We inform about human rights issues in public and address them at policy makers. In our network and activities, we co-operate regular with other organizations and groups that work in or on Indonesia.

We inform on current developments in Indonesia and give Indonesians civil society a voice in public discourse through our publications and events. We work on human rights, enviromental issues, ressources such as cement and sand, and have a focus on supporting and strengthening workers in the palm oil industry. 

We also organize film screenings and language courses in Cologne.
