About us

Other Public Sector

The Foundation CNV Internationaal is a civil society organisation connected to the National Confederation of Christian Trade Unions in The Netherlands (CNV). CNV Internationaal has been working with trade unions in developing countries for more than 50 years. Together with its partner organisations CNV Internationaal protects and promotes workers’ rights by means of a consultative and coherent model in which social dialogue, pluralism of the trade union movement and workers’ individual responsibility are key values. CNV Internationaal’s mission is to contribute to Decent Work in developing countries through strengthening the position of workers in both the formal and informal economy, through strong social partners and by promoting sustainability throughout supply chains. In the Netherlands, CNV Internationaal– together with the CNV and CNV trade union federations – contributes to Decent Work in developing countries through lobbying, policy and raising awareness. The work of CNV Internationaal is centred on the themes of social dialogue, labour rights in supply chains and (youth) employability.
