The Global Network is an alliance of labour movement organisations responding to the new challenges of globalisation within the framework of the Decent Work for Decent Life Campaign.
The Global Network brings people together 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, and 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.
The Global Network currently operates in 36 countries across Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and Middle East. The campaign for Decent Work and Decent Life is pursued through the following themes: TRADE, SOCIAL PROTECTION, MIGRATION.
