In common with our partner organisations, our purpose is to promote international solidarity among trade union organisations and between these and other organisations and movements of civil society with the objective of achieving a democratic and sustainable world society.
The GLI is a service organization to the labour movement. It is guided by the values and principles of democratic socialism, and we share the analysis of the global challenges and tasks facing the labour movement outlined in the founding statement of GLI (Geneva).
More specifically, we develop and encourage education, capacity-building and research on international labour movement development, gender policy and organising strategies. We have specialist international experience in organisation and trade union policy with informal economy workers, union capacity-building, the design and management of international workers’ education programmes, and development education with the trade union movement.
