Description

Description

This course aims to enhance the capacity of trade-union representatives from selected African countries to increase the coverage and effectiveness of social protection systems in Africa, with a view to improving the equity, resilience and opportunity of these systems within the context of national goals and priorities and Agenda 2030 (SDGs). This means strengthening trade unions' capacities to advocate for the extension of social protection coverage to all members of society through the application of the ILO Social Security (Minimum Standard) Convention, 1952 (No. 102) and the Social Protection Floors Recommendation, 2012 (No. 202), thus addressing the problems of poverty, inequality and social exclusion engendered by globalization as governed by neo-liberal policies. It is hoped that the course will enable trade-union leaders and members to play a constructive role in the reform of existing social security schemes.

Target audience

Target audience

The programme is for office-bearers, educators, women and youth committee members of less than 45 years of age who are directly responsible for social protection in their national trade-union centres or industrial l trade unions.
