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.

"Sor Sonith, a fourth-grade teacher in Bosra commune’s Sreu Kleng primary school, quickly realized that the classes the Education Ministry was broadcasting across state television stations wouldn’t work for her 30 students in Lames village. Her students could keep up with the mathematics course, and maybe even outpace them, but the Khmer lessons moved too quickly for her students, the majority of whom are ethnically Bunong and often speak the indigenous group’s language at home." ------------- 🔗Read our article: https://bit.ly/37E5w5X 🔗More publication: https://rosaluxhanoi.org/en/publications.html ------------------------ #ASEAN #rlssea #rlshanoi #justice #fair #socialjustice #fishers #cambodia #poor #teacher #covi̇d19

👉THE STATELESS NEED RIGHTS, PROTECTION, AND A VOICE “Invisible.” “Excluded.” “Worthless.” These are just a few of the words stateless people often use to describe themselves. Invisible—the topic of statelessness and stateless people themselves play virtually no role in public discussion. This means that their problems go unheard and remain unresolved. Excluded—stateless people are regarded as not belongingto the societies they live in. This means that they are seen as different or foreign. Worthless—without education and a livelihood it is often difficult to make a meaningful contribution to society. --------- 📍Full publication: https://bit.ly/2HrdwwA 📲Visit: https://rosaluxhanoi.org/en/publications.html -------- #climatejustice#rosaluxhanoi#rls#socialjustice#socialsecurity#rosalux#hanoi#vietnam#socialjustice #hochiminh #energy #industry #Atlas #refugee
