As education is seen as an increasingly lucrative global market by private corporations, the Global Response monitors and analyses the involvement of education corporations and edu-businesses and advocates against the expansion of profit making in education where it undermines the right of all students to free quality education.
In addition to its broad global perspective, the Global Response campaign works in target countries where education unions have identified a particular threat to public education. Research reports by country:
