These are the five priorities guiding the work that EI undertakes in the current Congress period. The first and second priorities reflect EI’s professional agenda and advance it through the development of strategies to implement the EI Education Policy and to monitor the achievement of Education For All pledges made by governments and the international community. The third and fourth priorities, which address attacks on education unions, the erosion of democratic and social standards in general, as well as persistent inequalities, call for the effective use of the complaint mechanisms provided by United Nations’ (UN) and regional agencies, thus helping to protect the rights and status of educators and pupils. To even further advance the work under the four priorities mentioned above, the fifth priority aims at strengthening the capacity of EI’s membership, through capacity building and organising programmes.
