Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation

For democratic and social rights worldwide

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is a left-wing foundation which, together with its foreign division, the Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation (CID), is active across the world in providing political education. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung has regional and international offices in over twenty locations, and we collaborate with hundreds of partner organisations, political bodies, and individuals in more than 80 countries. Our work lends support to emancipatory political forces, and helps forge alternative models of society founded on democratic socialist values. Our vision for the future is built on the full realisation of social and democratic rights for all people, a socially just and ecologically sustainable global economic order, gender equality and feminism, international solidarity, and peace. To this end, we aim to overcome the capitalist mode of production.

The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is affiliated with the Left Party in the Federal Republic of Germany. As is the case with other German party-affiliated foundations, it receives funding from the public budget. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is a space of critical thought: we discuss political processes and develop alternatives. It also acts as a hub for emancipatory educational projects: we share and disseminate knowledge in order to encourage all forms of self-organisation and participation. The Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is also a partner to left-wing actors: we bring together left-wing actors and provide a forum for political dialogue. Our international work strives to incorporate the perspectives and experiences of our partners abroad into political dialogue in Germany, and to ensure a genuinely equal and reciprocal exchange of knowledge. Together with our partners, Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung focuses on a range of key issues in order to develop political alternatives at the local, national, and international level.
