Rosa Luxemburg Foundation
The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation is one of the largest political education institutions in Germany today and is committed to the mainstream ideology of democratic socialism. The foundation evolved from a small political group, “Social Analysis and Political Education Association“, founded in 1990 in Berlin into a nationwide political education organisation, a discussion forum for critical thought and political alternatives as well a research facility for progressive social analysis.
Forming the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation are:
- The general and sustaining members of the association and the executive board members with Dagmar Enkelmann serving as chairman and Dr. Florian Weis as chief executive officer
- Academic scholars and scientists in advisory boards and as authors of our publications, stipendiaries and liaison professors, hundreds of volunteers
- Approximately 100 employees that work in either the academy of political education, the centre for international communication and collaboration, the “Studienwerk” (organisation providing social, financial and cultural support services to students in Germany), the archive of democratic socialism or areas of public relations, bookkeeping or finances
In 1996 the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation was officially recognised as a nationwide affiliated trust of the Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS), presently known as “DIE LINKE “ (The Left). As such it works closely with DIE LINKE affiliated state foundations and associations nationwide.
The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation aims to:
- Organise political education and disperse knowledge about social relations in a globalized, unjust and hostile world
- Provide a venue for critical analysis of the current capitalism; act as a hub for programmatic discussions about a modern democratic socialism, so to say a socialistic think-tank for political alternatives
- Manage a forum in Germany and internationally that supports dialogue between left-socialistic powers, socialistic movements and organisations, left-minded intellectuals and non-governmental organisations
- Grant funding to young scholars via undergraduate and postgraduate stipends
- Give impulses to self-defining socialistic political activities and support commitment to peace and international understanding for a socially just and solidary union
