The NASUWT supports teacher trade unionism across the globe, giving priority to four nations: Burma, Colombia, Iraq and Zimbabwe.

Over the years, the Union has extended its support to countries where teachers have faced a denial of their working rights and freedoms, particularly teacher trade unionists in Turkey and Bahrain.

Our international work includes our latest campaign calling for the immediate release of Esmail Abdi, fellow teacher and trade union leader, held in Iran's notorious Evin prison, notable for the political wing nicknamed 'Evin University' due to the number of intellectuals held there. Please write to Iran's Head of Judiciary Sadegh Larijani for his release.
