Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. It produces high-quality, internationally comparable data and indicators, and develops key statistics that can be used to understand the economy and predict future trends. Its international surveys on education and skills provide benchmarks that help countries to equip citizens with the knowledge and skills needed to participate fully in their economies and societies.

EI represents organisations of teachers and other education employees across the globe. It is the world’s largest federation of unions, representing 32 million education employees in around 400 organisations in 172 countries and territories. To ensure that the voice of the teaching profession is heard in the international arena, EI engages actively and constructively with all the major international organisations, including the OECD, UNESCO, the International Labour Organization, and the World Bank.
