Public Services & Private actors

We believe public services are essential for ensuring the enjoyment of economic, social and cultural rights.
We monitor the impacts of privatisation and commercialisation on these services, expose abuses when they occur, demand that those responsible are held accountable, and promote alternative arrangements aligned with human rights.


We work to reverse the harmful effects of commercialising public services such as education, healthcare, water, sanitation and social protection.

Stories Of Impact


Our Future is Public conference

GI-ESCR is proud to report the success of the Our Future is Public (#OFIP22) Conference. The Conference gathered social movements, trade unions and civil society organisations from all over the world in Santiago, Chile for a 4-day Conference aiming at developing strategies and narratives to strengthen public services for the realisation of economic, social and cultural rights and tackle the effects of climate change. The conference was attended by more than 400 people and many others participated virtually.
The result of which is the adoption of the Santiago Declaration which calls for universal access to quality, gender-transformative and equitable public services as the foundation of a fair and just society.
