The GLI Network is an alliance of organisations promoting international solidarity among trade union organizations and other organizations and movements of civil society. These share the objective of achieving a democratic and sustainable world society, based on the principles of social justice, freedom and the rule of law. GLI Network members are service organizations to the labour movement, guided by the values and principles of democratic socialism.
The members of the GLI Network are GLI Geneva, GLI Manchester, the Praxis Center (GLI Moscow), Trade Unions for Energy Democracy (GLI New York) and Projet ReAct (GLI Paris). We also have close links with unions, international union federations and labour movement NGOs throughout the world. Each network member is independent and autonomous, but we work together cooperatively, coordinated by the GLI Network Board, generally meeting twice a year.
The GLI Network encourages and supports education, research, publishing and debate on international trade union politics with an extensive network of union leaders, activists and organisations, as well as supportive academic researchers and writer.
