This paper presents a study of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, which constitutes an important figure of political landscape in Germany and abroad. It looks at how the theoretical framework consists of the open system theory as compared with the closed system and definitions of some major terms and how the rationale behind this study lies in unveiling the facts that were previously unknown to the general public. It aims to determine on the basis of the facts disclosed whether KAF functions as a rational open system, striving for survival and pursuing adaptation policies in the face of constraints. The aims of KAF include promotion of democracy and freedom, pluralism and solidarity as well as structural development.

General Introduction
Nature of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation
Study of External Environment

From the Paper:

"The KAF conducts political education on the basis of Christian democracy both at home and abroad. Seminars on recent German history give the youth a feeling of orientation in the situation of high alienation towards diffuse German identity or sympathy to the Neo-fascist movement. KAF is aware of the fact that human capital is of essential significance for change and transformation processes. It has therefore established scholarships for experts from politics, economics and administration, and for students of all faculties (in particular from economics, law, and political science departments). Through education of leaders it strengthens independent civil society organizations."
