The Global Network
What is the Global Network?
The Global Network is an alliance of labour movement organisations responding to the new challenges of globalisation within the framework of the Decent Work Agenda.
The Global Network aims to improve the capacity of civil society activists to engage in dialogue with key decision makers at the national, regional and international levels. This is achieved through seminars, workshops, the publication of educational material for trade unions, worker organisations and NGOs, and the development of educational programmes.
It was established in 2001 by SOLIDAR and the International Federation of Workers’ Education Associations (IFWEA) in order to unite organisations concerned about the effects of globalisation on people’s lives.
Where and what does it work on?
The Global Network currently operates in 36 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
The Global Network has three key topics for action: migration, social protection and trade.
