The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung is a political education institution with offices in Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. We seek to contribute to the construction of a more democratic and egalitarian society, promoting research, reflection and debates on capitalism alternatives. We advocate for a dialogue between the North and the Global South, based on equality. With the help of the Historic Centre for Democratic Socialism in Berlin, it also documents important historical events and achievements of the entire political left.
Since its foundation in 1990, the Foundation’s work has connected to the legacy of its namesake, the Polish-German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, and seeks to represent democratic socialism with an internationalist approach. We are committed to a radical perspective that emphasizes public awareness and social criticism, we adhere to the tradition of workers’ and women’s movements, as well as anti-colonialism and anti-racism.
We are one of the German non-profit political foundations, linked to the Left Party (Die Linke, in German). Since 2000, our international cooperation and solidarity initiatives have been supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Germany. Our Scholarships Department supports young academics from all over the world with financial grants and other forms of assistance, seeking to develop and expand the concept of political education, emphasizing a critical analysis of society as our central task.
