4–29 May 2020
The course is available in English, Français, Español

The rapid pace of change in economic globalization and technology, as well as demographics and climate, has been accompanied by equally rapid changes in the world of work, leading to high levels of uncertainty and insecurity. As part of the ILO's "Future of Work" initiative, we have recently seen the launch of a report by the Global Commission on "The Future of Work We Want", followed by the ILO Centenary Declaration on the Future of Work, which was adopted at the International Labour Conference in 2019. The outcomes of these and other related developments require serious and deep reflection on the part of trade-union organizations on how they envisage the future of work. This course will build the capacities of trade unions to face this future of work from a decent-work perspective, imparting understanding of new workplace relationships and an economy and society based on innovation, and strengthening trade unions' negotiating capacities in this rapidly changing framework.
