Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation
Democratic socialism is, historically and by its essence, committed to international cooperation and solidarity. The international activities of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation (RLF) aim to provide political education by means of social analysis, programmes and projects for democratic and social emancipation and developing capabilities for political action.
The most important areas of international cooperation are social and democratic participation, empowering politically and socially disadvantaged groups, alternatives for social development, conflict prevention and peaceful conflict resolution as well as the future of the European Union. Toward these ends, the Foundation cooperates with different organisations, left and democratic socialist parties, trade unions, women's organisations and the new social movements. It is active in more than 25 countries and participates in the process of the World Social Forum. Since 2000 projects have been funded by the Ministry for Economic Cooperation (BMZ) and the Federal Foreign office (AA).
Regional departments are in charge of mentoring the various foreign projects supported by the RLF. Additionally, RLF offices have been established in most regions in which the foundation is active. In the following section you will find information about our activities in the various regions, as well as contact information for the various offices and employees involved.
