About Us

The Representative Office in Vietnam of Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung was founded in 2009 and is located in the capital city Hanoi. The first projects, however, already started in 2003. We work in Vietnam, Laos and in other countries of the Mekong region and foster political education, analysis and dialogue on issues like social justice, socio-ecological transformations as well as peace and security. Our team is part of the RLS Centre for International Dialogue and Cooperation’s global network and funded by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

RLS in Germany

Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is one of the six major political foundations in the Federal Republic of Germany that are committed to civic and political education. The foundation is inked to the German left party Die Linke, a democratic socialist party in the German parliament and several state governments. Like the other party-affiliated foundations, the Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is a non-profit organization that receives funding from the public budget. Since its establishment in 1990, the foundation’s work has adhered to the legacy of its namesake, German socialist leader Rosa Luxemburg, who advocated for democratic socialism with an unwavering internationalist focus. The foundation promotes a critical analysis of capitalist society and strategic analysis on how to bring about a socialist transformation through its headquarters in Berlin and regional offices across Germany.
