Our Goals

Political Education

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung seeks to develop and expand the concept of political education by emphasizing critical analysis of society as our central task, further underlined by our namesake. As a foundation bearing the name of the left-wing visionary Rosa Luxemburg, the RLS stands in the tradition of the workers' and women's movements, as well as anti-fascism and anti-racism. It is committed to a radical perspective emphasizing public awareness, enlightenment, and critique.

Political Alternatives

The critical analysis of society includes the firm belief that social change requires a reflective confrontation with today's capitalist society as a whole. Therefore, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung facilitates programmatic discussions around a modern conception of democratic socialism, and strives to develop alternative concepts for a comprehensive process of social transformation. It fosters networks of emancipatory political, social, and cultural initiatives to enable the creation of a more united and just society.

Joining Socialist Forces

Internationally, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung participates in cooperative development projects and advocates for a dialogue between the Global North and South conducted on equal footing. Hereby, especially the dialogue between socialist forces, movements and organizations, left-minded intellectuals, and non-governmental organizations is at the centre of our work. We provide impulses for independent socialist political action and support initiatives for peace and international understanding.
