New website provides overview of the fiscal tightening impact worldwide.

Education International has set up a new website in expansion of its advocacy work.

The site, located at, continues EI’s larger call for “adequate investment in education” at a time when many countries have fallen into the austerity trap.

Current featured articles discuss a range of topics such as the consequences of financial asphyxia and reform of Spain’s public universities, an overview of the neoliberal roots behind the current education crisis, education’s role in “inclusive growth,” and connections between education and rising youth unemployment. A selection of studies, publications, and policy briefs are also available and an interactive world map highlights concerns in different countries.
