The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation is named after Rosa Luxemburg, the Polish-German politician of Jewish origin who was murdered in 1919. The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation locates itself in the spectrum of democratic socialism, and is close to The Left Party in Germany. It has dedicated itself to the heritage of Rosa Luxemburg in its most modern sense: emancipative and critical of capitalism, radically democratic and opposed to all forms of dictatorship, dedicated to solidarity and opposed to imperial power. Political education, critical societal analysis, comprehensive international work and research grants are its most important areas of work. The São Paulo Office is part of the global network of the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.
