The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung (RLS) is a left-wing foundation which, together with its international department, the Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation (CID), is active across the world in fostering and providing civic education. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung maintains regional and international offices in over twenty locations, and collaborates with hundreds of partner organisations and individuals in more than 80 countries. RLS work seeks to help forge alternative social models founded on democratic socialist values. Its vision for a future society rests on the full realisation of democratic and social rights for all people, a socially just and ecologically sustainable global economic order, gender equality, international solidarity, and peace.
The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is affiliated with the Left Party in the Federal Republic of Germany. As is the case with other German party-affiliated foundations, it receives funding from the public budget. As a space for critical thought, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung facilitates discussions of social processes and the development of alternatives while also acting as a hub for emancipatory educational projects. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is also a partner to left-wing actors, bringing together various left-wing organisations and individuals and providing a forum for dialogue. RLS international work strives to incorporate the perspectives and experiences of our partners abroad into social dialogue in Germany, and to ensure a genuinely equal and reciprocal exchange of knowledge. Together with our partners, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung focuses on a range of key issues in order to develop alternatives at the local, national, and international level.
