ABOUT US

The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation was founded in 1990 as an association for social analysis and political education. In Germany, the Foundation is engaged in political education on historical topics, on the analysis of society in a newly reunified Germany and on global issues of the future.
The Foundation is close to the political party Die-Linke and its activities in Germany and abroad are largely financed by public funds of the Federal Republic of Germany.
In 2000, the Foundation started its international activities, which are based on cooperation with foreign partners engaged in the promotion of social and democratic development. In 2002, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation opened its first international office in Johannesburg.

The Alternative Report on Africa (AROA), after a Number Zero expressing the need for an approach that takes into account the reality of African societies and their projection for the future, questions the situation and developments of the continent under the prism of sovereignty. It is a question of measuring, through a new paradigm, the real challenges, gains and gaps of African societies as well as their resistance to a capitalist and neoliberal system that is largely imperialist.

This Issue One of AROA draws on analyses of dynamics often glossed over or ignored in conventional reports and seeks to exhume or rehabilitate the real developments in African societies today that are strengthening their autonomy and sovereignty in the context of the prevailing neoliberal and capitalist model.
