Advocacy and Campaigns


EILER recognizes the need to actively participate in the social process by initiating or joining initiatives for labor advocacy. As a logical extension of its labor education and research work, the institution’s advocacy primarily reflects sectoral demands for living wage, decent and regular jobs, sustainable livelihood and democratic rights. It also includes broader economic, social, cultural and political concerns such as land reform, climate change, governance and elections, peace negotiations and human rights. Some of our notable advocacy work have been on:
