Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung – East African Regional Office is cooperating with civil society organisations, social movements, media, academia and other progressive forces in member states of the East African Community.

Inspired by a vision of a society characterized by emancipation, equal rights and multiple forms of democratic participation the Foundation is contributing to partner organisations’ efforts in various fields of intervention. Cooperation is based on joint values like partnership, transparency, accountability and solidarity. Main focus areas are regional integration and trade policies; governance of natural resources; and participatory democracy.
