Together with organisations of and MOC, WSM reinforces networks of social movements in Belgium, Africa, Latin America and Asia in order to internationalise their joint struggle at local, national, regional and international level.

    WSM and its network are working for inclusive and sustainable development. What does this imply?
    - Development must be understood in its broader sense of building societies. It is clear that in the process of building societies, several possible paths can be followed.

    Main EU files targeted

    We have been actively following and contributing to the European Communication on Decent Work (2006/2010), on Social Protection in EU Development Cooperation (2012) and the role of Civil society in Development Cooperation (2012). We also closely follow up the contribution of the EU institutions to the implementation of the Agenda 2030, mainly from our thematic expertise: decent work and the right to social protection.

    Recently, WSM has taken a very active interest in the issue of human rights due diligence and how to bring this within EU initiatives, policies and legisaltive files. As a result, WSM has contributed to the deliberations and negotiations of the EU Directive on Non-Financial Reporting (2014/95/EU) and the Conflict Minerals Regulation (2016). WSM is participating in the advocacy work along with european's NGO's and trade Union networks on a directive for a mandatory Human Right Due Diligence for Companies (2022).

    In the European Parliament, we have actively worked together with MEP's on human rights resolutions condemning labour rights violations in several countries worldwide. We have also contributed to the drafting of Parliamentary Reports and questions of MEP's for EC Commissioners on issues relevant to our work in the field of labour rights and social protection. in 2017, WSM contributed to the EP Report on the impact of international trade and the EU’s trade policies on global value chains.
