Communicating freedom of association and collective bargaining rights
Since 2007, ITCILO has been training journalists and media professionals from all over the world. Our aim is to equip them with the a better knowledge of international labour standards and the work of the ILO supervisory bodies and so make them more effective in reporting on and raising public awareness of internationally recognized human and labour rights.
A new media training course, focusing on freedom of association and collective bargaining rights, will be held on campus from 1 to 3 December 2015. The course will bring together journalists, correspondents, reporters and editors working in all types of media in countries where the ILO is currently implementing technical cooperation projects, in particular Bangladesh, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
This training course is part of the SIDA-ILO Partnership Programme 2014-2015 and is jointly organized and implemented by the ILO Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work Branch (FUNDAMENTALS) and the ITCILO.
Using the knowledge and competencies acquired during the training course, participants will be required to produce a story on freedom of association and/or collective bargaining. The stories will be entered for our “Media for Labour Rights” prize for journalism.
