Links seeks to promote the international exchange of information,
experience of struggle, theoretical analysis and views of political
strategy and tactics within the international left. It is a forum for
open and constructive dialogue between active socialists coming from
different political traditions. It seeks to bring together those in the
international left who are opposed to neoliberal economic and social
policies. It aims to promote the renewal of the socialist movement in
the wake of the collapse of the bureaucratic model of "actually existing
socialism" in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe.

`Without worker-management, there is no socialism’

Vietnam: On the road towards the renewal of socialism
By Tran Dac Loi
Years ago, while we were fighting the US war of aggression, the word 
“Vietnam” became very familiar to the world. However, over the past 
decades, less information about Vietnam has reached to the outside 
world, and therefore understanding of Vietnam has become less among its 
world friends. It is against this background that I would like to take 
this opportunity to provide you with a broad overview about history of 
Vietnam, with the main focus on its development over the past 30 years.
