International

We work with students all over the world

DSF’s international work ranges widely. We shape the European education landscape through The European Students’ Union (ESU), collaborates across national borders in Students Organizing for Sustainability International, and we fight for Denmark to make a contribution to building education systems for the world's most vulnerable through development aid. 

We also cooperate with the other Nordic student organizations in the Nordic President's Meeting (NOM), and fight for the rights of international students in Denmark. 

Our three partnership projects connect us to student organizations in other countries and give us new perspectives on our own work. 

Projects

Palestine

The Palestine Project is tasked with creating a Palestinian interest organization for students. The organization must safeguard student rights and champion the students' cause in terms of living conditions and study environment. Likewise, it is hoped that such an organization will promote dialogue across the universities in Palestine. 

Zambia

The Insofu Project: We collaborate with the national student movement in Zambia (Zanasu) to increase academic freedom – understood as the right to education. The project is launched in 2022 and aims to improve structural inequality in access to higher education, human rights violations and lack of equality in education.

Zimbabwe

The Zimbabwe Project DSF has a collaboration with the Zimbabwe National Union of Students (ZINASU). The partnership was started with a partner identification visit in January 2014, and in the summer of 2014 the visit was followed up by a feasibility study. Here, the participants from ZINASU and DSF agreed to continue the collaboration and create a pilot project together, where Zimbabwean student leaders will receive training in leadership, campaign planning, mobilization, organization and how to pass this on to other local student leaders. The collaboration has continued and volunteers in Denmark are responsible for the project in collaboration with those active in ZINASU.
