Projects in South Asia
Together, change is possible
Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung is committed to the idea of democratic socialism and as such dedicated to international cooperation and solidarity. Around the world, RLS offers civic and political education and conducts projects for social emancipation.
The New Delhi office has been established in 2010. It is responsible for the foundation’s activities in the South Asian region, comprising India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Our work focuses on issues related to social transformations, labour and agriculture. We work primarily in partnerships with local cooperation partners with whom we jointly develop and implement our projects.
Furthermore, we promote the discourse among activists, scientists and intellectuals from South Asia and Germany as well as from other regions of the world. A special focus lies on creating networks among countries of the Global South.
