1. Introduction

The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (short forms the “RLS” or “Rosa”) originated from the registered association in Germany once called "Social Analysis and Political Education" and founded in Berlin in 1990. In 1996, the RLS was recognised by the Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS) as its close political education institution. The Party of Democratic Socialism transformed itself into “Linkspartei” (“Left Party”), which together with the so-called “WASG formed the new party “Die LINKE” (“The Left”) in 2007. Nowadays, the RLS is affiliated with this German political party and works closely together with “The Left” worldwide.

The RLS has become a provider of civic education and a centre for progressive social research in both Germany and throughout the world. As one of six party-affiliated political foundations in Germany it supports partners in developing countries striving for social justice, strengthened public participation and economic development. In April 2009, the RLS Regional Representative Office for Southeast Asia was opened in Hanoi (Vietnam) managing activities and partnerships in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar.
In the Southeast Asian region, Rosa embraces the mission of assisting transformation countries, such as Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam to a socially just, sustainable, participatory and democratic society. Currently, it is cooperating with approximately 15 partner organisations like academic institutions and “grass-root” organisations as well as state partners on a variety of issues within the three components of social justice, socio-ecological transformation (SET) and participatory politics.
