Social Justice

The commitment for social justice is an integral component in the program of Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung. Based on the conviction that social justice is a precondition for sustainable development, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung focuses on improving the situation of disadvantaged social groups (in particular ethnic minorities, women and migrant workers).

To that end, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is working in cooperation with its partners to inform the marginalized groups about their rights and to enable them to demand their rights successfully so they have better access to social protection and other public services. In addition, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung creates opportunities of exchange and dialogue between academics, civil society, political decision makers and the target groups in order to foster the political impact of the latter.

Socio-ecological Transformation

Rosa has basically the vision of emerging socio-ecologic transformation processes. In order to meet the specific challenges of the region, we promote a socially just development in consideration of continually changing ecological interrelations. In order to contributeĀ  effectively to this vision and by the help of our partners, RLS SEA combines local and regional as well as international concepts and supports their adaptation and application in the respective setting. The foundation disputes common economic mechanisms critically and their impact on diverse lifestyles and ecological processes. We understand exchange on left politics and strategiesā€“ open for a dialogue based on critique in solidarity – as a chance to learn from each other and to jointly shape a prosperous future.

Participatory Politics

The party Die Linke, affiliated with Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung, as well as Germany as a whole made important experiences passing through fundamental transition processes in the aftermath of 1990. Hence, both Germany and Southeast Asian countries could benefit to a large extent of an exchange of experiences to find a suitable development model. Though, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung does not only aim for an international dialogue and exchange but also wishes to include the people, their needs and opinions for this quest.

For that reason Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung strives to create an open dialogue between academics, political decision makers and representatives of civil society. In this framework, there shall be an exchange of opinions and experiences to identify and to cope with social problems in order to follow the ideals of a balanced, peaceful, democratic and solidary society.
