Structure and Methodology

Structure and Methodology

Over a two-week period, participants have the opportunity to take advantage of a rich and flexible learning programme, which guarantees a steep learning curve in an international environment of knowledge exchange and provides a unique opportunity for networking with a large pool of social dialogue and industrial relations experts.

The Academy will combine plenary sessions with elective parallel sessions to be chosen by the participants according to their preferences. It will foster a conducive environment to social dialogue. The methodology will be learner-centred with the support of facilitators and practitioners of social dialogue and industrial relations. In addition to the lectures provided by national and international experts, permanent interaction among participants through group work, discussions and other interactive learning methods will also take place.

Participants will have the opportunity to look into several experiences of social dialogue in a direct manner through interaction with the key players of social dialogue and industrial relations and compare them with their own experience and context. It is expected to create a culture and momentum of dialogue to be promoted and deepened by the participants afterwards.
