At last, a course on International Labour Standards for judges from francophone Africa on campus!
A course on International Labour Standards (ILS) designed specifically for employment tribunal judges in francophone African countries is being held on campus for the very first time this week.
The aim of the course is to implement one of the recommendations of the Conference on ILS for African supreme courts held in Zambia in 2013, which was to strengthen the capacities of African courts in using international labour law and to encourage them to share experience.
This course is part of the Centre’s “International Labour Standards for Judges, Lawyers and Legal Educators” programme and has received support from the ILO Regional Office for Africa and the PAMODEC project promoting fundamental principles and rights at work.
Judges from eleven countries are attending the course, ten of whom are Presidents of Employment Tribunals.
