In this brief exchange, Evelin Wittich reflects on the contemporary significance of Rosa Luxemburg. In  particular, Wittich addresses ways of situating Luxemburg as a European and global thinker, considering Luxemburg’s stance on the national question and internationalism. This exchange testifies to Luxemburg’s  continuing relevance in a time of populist politics in Europe. Wittich explores the links between Luxemburg’s analysis of nationalism and national autonomy, and her engagement with the global remit of the  accumulation of capital, imperialism and neo-colonialism. In the conclusion, Wittich also comments on Luxemburg’s interest in plants and animals and reflects on how Luxemburg’s personal life cannot be detached from her restless fight for social justice.
