Antifascist education and network building has been one of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation’s core activities since its founding. The same is true of scholarly and analytical work in the field, both in Germany as well as across Europe and around the world. Since the early 2000s, the foundation has also developed its own anti-racist and, in recent years, increasingly independent (post-)migrant work.
Both threads belong to a common focus that combines the struggle against a radicalizing and growing Right, against fascism and tolerance of racism in society, as well as resistance against (globalized) authoritarianism, anti-feminism, anti-gypsyism, anti-Muslim racism, and anti-Semitism with strategies for a democratic, solidary way of life and ideological dialogue, and thus advocates for a society of the many. At the same time, we can observe a growing openness to right-wing speech in society, which we discuss in the context of changes in the world of work and associated insecurities. As a democratic socialist foundation, we seek to develop unifying perspectives in order to win people over to left-wing politics.
