PROGRAM INTERN WITH POSSIBILITY OF BEING PROMOTED TO THE POSITION OF A PROGRAM ASSISTANT

1. Introduction

The Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung (RLS; www.rosalux.de) originated from the registered association “Social Analy-sis and Political Education” founded in Berlin in 1990. In 1996, it was recognised by the Party of Democratic So-cialism (PDS) as its close political education institution. The Party of Democratic Socialism transformed itself into “PDS/Linkspartei”, later renamed itself into “Linkspartei” (Left Party) which is one of two parties in Germany that formed the new party “Die LINKE” (“The Left”) in 2007. 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 February 2009, the People’s Aid Coordinating Committee (PACCOM) granted the licence for the representative office for Southeast Asia in Hanoi.
