Struggles for liberation from exploitation and domination quickly reach their limits at the national level in the face of the globalisation of capitalist relations. The need for the international organisation of wage-earners and other dominated groups is becoming increasingly clear. At the same time, given the hierarchical international division of labour and the unequal development in different countries and regions, the conditions of struggle continue to be very different and require strategies adapted to the respective conditions.
Addressing this contradiction plays an important role in the work of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation. It supports trade unions, social movements and left organisations in different countries in their respective specific struggles. We advocate for a political dialogue on a just world order, in which actors from the global South and transnational social movements in particular are strengthened. This work, which includes research, political education and support for the networking of actors, involves in particular the Department for Political Economy of Globalization in the Institute for Critical Social Analysis, the Department for International Politics and Social Movements in the Academy for Political Education, and the Centre for International Dialogue.
