About Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS)
Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany, tasked primarily with conducting civic education both at home and abroad. The foundation is closely linked to Die Linke, the German Left Party.
The foundation promotes a critical analysis of society and fosters networks of emancipatory political, social and cultural initiatives around Germany. Internationally, it participates in cooperative development projects and advocates for dialogue between the Global North and South conducted on equal footing. It aims to organize political education and disseminate information on the social relations governing our globalized, unjust and hostile world.
The international work is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
