Régions concernées par cette opportunité: Tunis

The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation is a think tank affiliated with the German Left Party. We are working in North Africa since 2011 and have registered our regional office in Tunis in 2014. RLS is financed by public funds through the German ministry for Economic Cooperation (BMZ).


Since the outset of the Arab Spring several countries in North Africa are in a transition to more democracy, political participation and greater social justice. But economic policies are still based on the same economic models, which have contributed to the dire socio-economic situation that led to the Arab uprisings of 2011. This is one of the main reasons that prevents the development radical thinking about socio-economic transformation. Most progressive movements and academics alike lack constructive answers to the structural economic crisis (chronicle debt crisis, unemployment, trade and monetary dependencies).

RLS North Africa wants to contribute to critical economic analyses and to the debate on alternative economic theories (De-Growth, New green deal, alternative industrial development). We would like to connect Tunisian activists and critical economists with progressive movements and academics in other parts of Africa and Europe in order to promote food, energy and monetary sovereignty, social justice fair international trade relations and ecological sustainability.
