Global Labour Institute (GLI), Manchester

What is GLI

The Global Labour Institute in Manchester is a not-for-profit organisation, established in 2010 in cooperation with the Global Labour Institute in Switzerland and the  Global Labor Institute at Cornell University (now Trade Unions for Energy Democracy), New York.

Together with the GLI Moscow (Praxis Centre), and the GLI Paris (ReAct), the five organisations form the GLI Network and share a commitment to democratic socialist principles.

We work closely with a range of global union federations, national trade unions, workers’ associations, development agencies, research institutions and workers’ education organisations.

GLI Manchester currently coordinates the GLI Network.

GLI Manchester is constituted as a not-for-profit company (GLI Network Ltd) limited by guarantee under UK law.
