Education International represents organisations of teachers and other education employees across the globe. It is the world’s largest federation of unions, representing thirty million education employees in about four hundred organisations in one hundred and seventy countries and territories, across the globe. Education International unites all teachers and education employees.

The 7th EI World Congress (Ottawa, 2015) adopted two resolutions on “Migration, professional diversity and racism” and “The right to education for displaced people, refugee and stateless children”. In 2011, in Cape Town, the previous congress adopted a resolution on “Teacher Migration and Mobility”, in order to promote and defend the rights of migrant and mobile teachers.

This portal aims to support unions and teachers in their efforts to promote migrants’ and refugees’ rights, by sharing evidence, information, resources and good practices from around the world. More information about EI work on migration is available here.
