The most revolutionary thing one can do is always to proclaim loudly what is happening.

Rosa Luxemburg


Fighting for a Fair Society

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany, tasked primarily with conducting political education for progressive social development both at home and abroad. The Stiftung is closely linked to the German Left Party, Die Linke. Since its founding in 1990, the Stiftung’s work has adhered to the legacy of its namesake, German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, and seeks to represent critical thinking and democratic socialism with an unwavering internationalist focus.

The Hanoi office of the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung Southeast Asia embraces a mission of supporting the transformation of countries such as Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and Myanmar into participatory, socially just, and ecologically sustainable societies. The RLS SEA Regional Representative Office in Hanoi opened its doors in April 2009 and currently cooperates with around 15 partner organizations, including academic institutions, universities, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, government institutions, and parliaments.

(English below) Đánh giá về những vấn đề đáng quan ngại nhất năm 2020 cho thấy sự khác biệt giữa phụ nữ và nam giới. Phụ nữ quan ngại hơn với những vấn đề như giảm nghèo, y tế và giáo dục. Nam giới quan ngại hơn về các vấn đề tăng trưởng kinh tế, an ninh, tranh chấp biển Đông và tham nhũng. Sự khác biệt mang hàm ý chính sách quan trọng trong việc đề cử và bầu chọn người đại diện của công dân trong các cơ quan chính phủ Nguồn: Báo cáo Papi 2020 ________ Regarding major issues in 2020, women were far more concerned with issues related to poverty reduction, health care and education than men. Men were more likely to view economic growth, national security, the East Sea dispute and corruption as primary concerns. These differences in priorities highlight the importance for achieving equitable representation in elected bodies following the 2021 elections of National Assembly delegates and People’s Council members.

Countries in the Mekong subregion have managed the health aspect of the crisis far better than much wealthier counterparts such as the United States and United Kingdom. Despite relative success containing the virus, the political, economic, and social implications of measures to constrain its spread have been devastating for many and borne disproportionately by the poor. This will have long-lasting effects on the livelihoods and wellbeing of people across the region. ℹ️Read full research by Charlie Thame and Jana Rue Chin Glutting: http://bit.ly/CoronaCrisisintheMekong 📌Pictures are the illustrated introduction to Capitalist Transformation of the Mekong —- #corona #thailand #vietnam #laos #cambodia #mekong
