The Heinrich Böll Foundation e. V. (hbs) is the party-affiliated foundation of Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen named after Heinrich Böll . Legally and economically, it is a registered association without foundation assets. With its namesake, the writer and Nobel laureate in literature Heinrich Böll, the foundation combines the defense of freedom, moral courage, contentious tolerance and the appreciation of art and culture as independent spheres of thought and action.
The federal foundation is part of the federally organized foundation association, which is composed of the sixteen legally and organizationally independent state foundations. The state foundations have some influence and have 16 out of a total of 49 members in the general assembly, the highest decision-making body of the foundation . The remaining members come from the federal party or parliamentary group of Bündnis 90 / Die Grünen (four each) and the circle of "Friends of the Heinrich Böll Foundation" (25).
The statutory tasks are “political education at home and abroad to promote democratic decision-making, socio-political engagement and international understanding”. The foundation is guided by the fundamental political values of ecology , democracy , solidarity and non-violence . In addition, there is the joint task of "participation, gender democracy and anti-discrimination" and the cross-cutting issue of "digitization", which run through the entire work.
The foundation includes:
- the Studienwerk of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, which awards scholarships to students and doctoral candidates
- the Gunda Werner Institute for Feminism and Gender Democracy
- the Green Academy
- the GreenCampus training academy
- the archive of green memory
- currently 33 foreign offices
Even before 1983, the Greens had party-affiliated state foundations in some of the then ten federal states of West Germany. Before 1983 they tried to set up a foundation close to the party at the federal level. In addition to the state foundations, there was a nationwide women 's foundation in Hamburg that was close to the Greens and supported by women from the women's movement . The Federal Conference of Independent Peace Groups and the Federal Congress of Development Action Groups supported the "old" Heinrich Böll Foundation based in Cologne.
For a number of years in the early days of the green movement and party, it was controversial whether it was sensible and desirable to set up foundations affiliated to the party. This discussion was part of the history of the Greens, who at the beginning saw themselves as an anti-party and, as far as the party-affiliated foundations were concerned, criticized the fact that they served unjust, indirect party funding in practice . For the Greens, therefore, on 31 January 1983, the firm filed Schily , Becker, Geulen the Federal Constitutional Court a constitutional challenge one. The reason for the complaint was not only the indirect party financing with federal funds, but also that these funds went exclusively to the established parties, which, according to the plaintiffs, violated the principle of equality of the Basic Law. In its ruling, which was only issued in 1986, the Federal Constitutional Court declared that the funding of the party-related foundations by the public sector was legal, but warned that the foundations' independence had so far been inadequate and had to be strengthened.
Political scientist Tine Stein summarized this judgment as follows:
“From the point of view of the BVerfG, there were no constitutional concerns about state funding of political education through political foundations. The principle of state neutrality is not violated, as the court essentially stated in its 1986 judgment on the occasion of the action brought by the Greens, if the political foundations are de jure and de facto independent of the parties and if equal opportunities are maintained, i.e. There is an openness towards "newcomers" in the political field. In this context, the court also emphasized that state funding of the fields of activity of political foundations is in the public interest. "
After this judgment, the Greens had to decide whether - and if so, in what form - they wanted to have a party affiliated foundation. For this purpose, a foundation commission was set up by the party on August 24, 1986. The initiative to found the Heinrich Böll Foundation was constituted on September 14, 1986 in Cologne. On July 1st, 1988, the representatives of the eight regional foundations close to green then established the association Buntstift-Föderation grünnaher Landesstiftungen und Bildungswerke e. V. based in Göttingen. On July 26, 1988, the Rainbow Foundation was founded. V. as an umbrella organization of the individual foundations Buntstift , Frauen-Anstiftung and the old Heinrich Böll Foundation, a construction that was necessary because federal funds for a party-affiliated foundation could only be applied for through such an umbrella organization . On August 15, the federal board of the Greens recognized the Rainbow Foundation as the political foundation closely related to it.
The merger of the individual foundations to form the new Heinrich Böll Foundation was initiated at a federal assembly of Alliance 90 / The Greens in March 1996 in Mainz. “Gender democracy” and “migration” were enshrined in the statutes as joint tasks. The shared commitment to oppose discrimination against homosexuals was also taken into account.
The Heinrich Böll Foundation has existed in its current form since 1996/1997. On July 1st, 1997 she started her work in the Hackesche Höfe in Berlin; since June 2008 - the inauguration ceremony took place two months later - the head office has been located on Schumannstrasse in Berlin-Mitte opposite the Deutsches Theater .
As with other party-affiliated foundations, the majority of the budget comes from federal funds; In addition, there are project-related funding from the EU. In 2016, the income from public funds amounted to approx. 62 million euros.
Former President of the Federal Constitutional Court, Jutta Limbach, explained the type of financing :
“Anyone who knows the Basic Law (...) knows that it does not actually make any statements on questions of political education (...). I think there was never any serious doubt that this is legally possible, although we Germans have always had a very difficult time learning that something that is not forbidden is actually allowed. It goes without saying that you can set up political foundations that live on state money and those that you can set up privately (...) that get their subsidies more from the areas of the economy. "
The TuWas Foundation
On the initiative of members of the Friends of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, the TuWas Foundation for Community spirit was established in 2013 . In this way, as with other party-affiliated foundations, it has been possible since then to permanently support the work of the hbs through donations . This is used to run projects that are not allowed to be financed from federal funds due to the grant law .
Focus of work
According to its own statement, the Heinrich Böll Foundation has five so-called main concerns:
- Democracy and human rights
- Fight against environmental degradation
- social participation for everyone
- the peaceful resolution of conflicts
- the defense of individual freedom
Depending on regional circumstances and political necessity, these are broken down into the following main areas of work:
- Globalization and sustainable development
- Climate and energy policy
- Strengthening civil society
- Gender politics
- Democracy promotion
- European politics
- Transatlantic Dialogue
- Policy advice
- Arts and Culture
- Promotion of young talent
Globalization and sustainable development
- Resource policy : The foundation's “To have or not to have” memorandum analyzes existing initiatives, standards and mechanisms of global resource policy and formulates political recommendations to the G7 countries for responsible use of natural resources.
- "The meat atlas - data and facts about animals as food" This publication aims to provide information about the various dimensions of meat production and consumption and to point out alternatives. The project partners are Le Monde Diplomatique and BUND . So far, two editions have been published in 2013 and 2014, as well as an English version in 2014 "Meat Atlas 2014 Global facts and figures about meat"
- Economy and financial crisis : The foundation is committed to implementing a Green New Deal . Massive investments in ecological structural change, in education and qualification, science and research are intended to lay the foundations for a sustainable society.
- Plastic Atlas - Data and Facts about a World Full of Plastic was published in June 2019; According to this, Germany has the highest consumption of plastic in kg / inhabitant in Europe.
Climate and energy policy
- A motto of the work in this area is climate of justice . Not only should climate change be stopped, but a fair balance between world regions, countries and population groups should also be achieved. One example of this is the concept of “Greenhouse Development Rights” (GDRs).
- The foundation is committed to an energy transition , i. H. for investments in renewable energies, which not only make selective improvements, but also promote a fundamental change in infrastructures, the economy and the labor market.
Strengthening civil society
In many projects, the foundation is committed to building and maintaining civil society structures - be it in Afghanistan, Russia or within the EU.
- Gender politics and gender democracy have been the focus of the association's work from the very beginning - also and above all globally. In organizational development, the foundation has become a pioneer and role model for many other organizations.
- The Gunda Werner Institute within the foundation wants to "consider gender politics from different perspectives (...), whether (queer) feminist or male-political ..."
- The foundation is committed to the “social and political participation of women and equal rights for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender and intersex ( LGBTI )”.
Commitment to democracy and human rights has a broad spectrum - from transition countries such as the states of North Africa, Afghanistan or Myanmar to the exchange of experiences between activists from different regions of the world and work against disenchantment with politics in Germany and for the democratization of the EU.
Recently, the focus of European political activities has been on topics such as “the necessary reforms of the European institutions, the energy transition and European neighborhood and migration policy”.
The focus of the transatlantic dialogue program area is, on the one hand, the cooperation between Germany, or the EU and the USA on issues of international security and promoting democracy, and, on the other hand, aspects of an energy transition and the fight against climate change.
GreenCampus , the advanced training academy of the Heinrich Böll Foundation, is responsible for this area . According to her own statement, she offers “further education and qualification offers, especially in the core areas of political management, political personnel development as well as gender and diversity management”.
Arts and Culture
The foundation sees "art and culture as forms of expression of social self-understanding" and deals with the connections between "art and activism in social and political movements". Specifically, exhibitions, theater projects, film festivals and initiatives for network culture are supported.
The Heinrich-Böll-Haus in Langenbroich is a refuge and a house for scholars for authors and artists from all over the world.
The foundation supports the Heinrich Böll Archive of the Cologne City Library , which looks after Heinrich Böll's estate, organizes events and publishes editions.
Promotion of young talent
The Studienwerk is responsible for promoting young talent. Every year it looks after around 1000 students and doctoral candidates of all disciplines and nationalities.
The foundation currently has 32 foreign offices. The international project work is not limited to those countries in which there is an office (some of which are responsible for an entire region). In total, the foundation works with over a hundred partner projects in more than 60 countries.
Even before the new Heinrich Böll Foundation was established in 1997, some of its predecessor organizations had foreign offices, which were continued by the hbs. The first foreign office to be established was the Prague office, which opened in August 1990. The Pakistan office opened in 1993. Next, the offices in Turkey and Cambodia were opened in 1994, followed by the offices in Russia, Nigeria and the Central America office in El Salvador (all in 1995).
Of the foreign offices, only the one in Ethiopia (in Addis Ababa) was closed again over the years - in 2012 - because, according to the foundation, the "political framework and the legal situation in Ethiopia" (...) "a political one reasonable and practicable work of the foundation ”prevented. For security reasons, the head of the Kabul office was dismissed from Afghanistan at the beginning of 2013. However, the office itself continues to work with local staff.
The offices are manned by a manager who is sent to the project country and who is usually German national, as well as by local staff, which can occasionally include additional staff sent from Germany. Well-known former and current office managers of the Heinrich Böll Foundation include: a. Milan Horácek (Prague), René Wildangel (Ramallah) and Kerstin Müller (Tel Aviv). The posting of Kerstin Müller (from the end of 2013) was partly controversial. The Israeli Jerusalem Post accused Kerstin Müller of using Nazi methods to support the initiative to label Israeli products. The Jüdische Allgemeine , the most important German Jewish periodical, reported on the process in a purely factual manner.
Committees and workforce
At the beginning, the foundation had no dedicated management. Instead, the board of directors consisted of three people (at least two of whom had to be women), and the managerial duties were taken over by one of the board members. This structure was changed in 2002. Since then, the practice has had a two-person board (at least one woman must belong) and management. The term of office of the board members is five years. Re-election is possible.

The supervisory board “supervises the activities of the management board”. It “consists of nine people (...). Of the members of the supervisory board, elect: the general meeting from its ranks seven, the full-time employees two people. "
The women's council is elected by the general assembly. It has between seven and ten women. It advises the foundation's board of directors and decides on priority programs in the areas of women's policy and on criteria for project work.
The advisory boards are voluntary bodies. They advise the foundation in a number of fields. Currently (2015) there are the Academic Advisory Boards, North-South and Europe / Transatlantic.
Workforce and works council
According to its own information, as of December 31, 2013, the foundation employed 219 people in Germany, 29 people posted abroad and 200 local staff working abroad. Of the employees, 14 percent have a migration background; the proportion of women in the workforce is 74 percent.
The Heinrich Böll Foundation has a works council.
According to statements by the Free Workers' Union (FAU) Berlin, the foundation has been building up, dismantling and catering for events through illegal temporary work for years. In its judgment of September 5, 2013, the Berlin Labor Court condemned the foundation to employ the persons concerned directly. The Heinrich Böll Foundation accepted the ruling and pointed out that, as a recipient of federal tax revenue, it was bound by the law on granting and public procurement and could not pay employees as it pleased. The FAU subsequently protested against the foundation and demanded direct negotiations, which the foundation rejected, however, as the “FAU was not eligible for tariffs” and accordingly could not negotiate tariffs or working conditions.
In July 2017, the foundation started operating the online encyclopedia Agent * In in cooperation with the Gunda Werner Institute , which, according to its own statements , collects and organizes knowledge, data, facts and contexts about the influence of anti-feminist actors on politics and the public . The project met with criticism in the media, for example the Heinrich Böll Foundation was accused of running a platform for “public denunciation” with the “character of a pillory”. As a result, the Böll Foundation apologized and discontinued the project. The sociologist Andreas Kemper , co-founder of Agent * In , announced that the project would be continued in a revised form.

- Petra Kelly Prize (biennial)
- Hannah Arendt Prize for Political Thought (annually)
