Description

Description

This course looks at the contributions multinational enterprises (MNEs) and national enterprises can make to respect for labour rights, the achievement of decent work for all, and enhancing the development impact of MNE activities. It introduces participants to the guidance set out in the Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (the "MNE Declaration") for enterprises, governments, and employers' and workers' organizations. Through case studies, dialogue with MNEs and a company visit, participants will gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of government and enterprises in realizing workers' rights, fostering job creation and skills development, and supporting the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises through business linkages. The course strengthens the capacity of government institutions, employers' and workers' organizations and enterprises to align private actions more closely with public policy objectives and national development priorities, also taking into account the Sustainable Development Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
