FES Bangladesh in a nutshell
Together with its partners, the activities of FES in Bangladesh aims to facilitate inclusive dialogues on social justice with a focus on labour rights as well as sustainable and socioeconomic development.
In Bangladesh, FES has been working on organising regular policy dialogues, seminars and trainings on our three priority areas:
- Futures of the Labour Movement
- Futures of Work and the Economy
- Futures of Higher Education
We discuss these issues with regard to developments in Bangladesh, in the region and globally. We do this in order to link debates around the world, and to create opportunities for stimulating exchanges on multiple levels to help foster regional and global alliances.
In addition, FES Bangladesh also runs our flagship project Academy of Work (AoW) since 20 April, 2017. The AoW enables emerging young leaders from the trade union movement to participate in an intensive cross-sector 3-month training programme in the field of industrial relations, the economy and decent work along the global supply chain.
Centre for Policy Dialogue (CPD), Dhaka University (DU), Bangladesh Institute for Labour Studies (BILS), SME Foundation, Awaj Foundation and Karmojibi Nari (KN) are some of our trusted partners.
