Global Solidarity Network

The Global Solidarity Network is a focus group for INTO members who have an interest in global education issues, particularly in the developing world. The Network lobbies and campaigns for workers’ rights and in particular teachers’ unions and individual teachers who are being victimised or harassed in pursuit of their human/trade union rights.

An example of our campaigning effort was work done towards the release of Abu Dheeb, the President of the Teachers Association of Bahrain who was imprisoned for calling for a teachers’ strike and for improvement in the quality of education in Uganda.

If you are an INTO member and would like to join and support the Global Solidarity Network please contact jobrien@into.ie.
