About the network

15 unions worldwide have now signed an international agreement on defending education and employment standards in the context of global marketisation. Together, these unions represent more than half a million tertiary education workers around the world.

The deepening global recession and the cutting back of public provision will only give greater encouragement to a burgeoning private sector, making the international agreement only more relevant and important.

We are now turning this community of over 500,000 academics into something tangible.

    How do I become a member of this netwrork?

    Hello ESN,

    I am known as Mo, am part of the student represetative body at the University of Marburg (Germany) and initiator of the independent communication platform International Student Movement (ISM): http://ism-global.net/ism_en

    I stumbled upon your website and thought that it might be a good idea to connect ESN and ISM somehow.

    The ISM is a platform used and shaped by groups/activists around the world struggling against the increasing privatization of education and for free emancipatory education for all to exchange information, network and make coordinations together.

    Although ESN is more dominated by educators, I do feel that ISM and ESN can very well complement each other. After all I feel we have similar aims, if not the same.

    Please let me know what you think.

    in solidarity,

  • Hi all,
