On July 15, 2018, representatives of the Eurasia Business and Economics Society (EBES) and the Global Labor Organization (GLO) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) about establishing a long-term collaboration on educational and research activities between both organizations. Among other issues, the cooperation will include the exchange of academic documents, the organization of events, joint publications and other means to foster research. For instance, GLO intends to organize sessions at the May 29-31, 2019 EBES conference in Coventry, UK following the very successful experiences of a first joint event organized in May 2018 in Berlin. The MOU has been signed by EBES Vice President Mehmet Huseyin Bilgin and GLO President Klaus F. Zimmermann.
