Description

Description

International organizations are under an obligation to offer their staff fair employment conditions and effective means of employment dispute resolution.

The increasing number of employees affected by managerial decisions on the part of international organizations, as well as the growing judicialization of employment disputes, points to the need to improve the ability of international organizations to prevent and manage conflict effectively.

At the end of the training course, participants will be able to: - Recognize the importance of effective employment dispute resolution systems in the specific environment of international organizations; - Understand the guiding principles of effective conflict prevention and management; - Apply best practices in preventing and managing employment disputes; - Improve existing dispute management processes, practices and frameworks within organizations.
