Our mission in Bangladesh

The FES Bangladesh Office was established in March 2013

The FES Bangladesh Office was established in March 2013. Since then, together with our partners, we have been conducting research and organising policy dialogues, seminars and trainings. We are campaigning for policy changes on three priority policy areas: Futures of the Labour Movement, the Economy of Tomorrow and Futures of Higher Education. We discuss these issues with regard to developments in Bangladesh, in the region and globally. We aim at linking debates around the world, and to create opportunities for stimulating exchanges on multiple levels to help foster regional and global alliances.

Our thematic areas are closely interlinked. Therefore, our key objective is to break boundaries and build bridges between various actors. In this line, we address these futures in the national context of Bangladesh, in the region, and globally. Our goal is to create stimulating and innovate exchanges and to shape transformation processes in a rapidly changing world.

In addition, FES Bangladesh has been running a flagship project, the Academy of Work (AoW), since 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.
