Violence and harassment in the world of work are a threat to the dignity, security, health and well-being of everyone, affecting not only workers and employers, but also their families, communities, economies and society at large. In June 2019, through the adoption of ILO Convention No. 190 and Recommendation No. 206, the global community made it clear that this phenomenon cannot be tolerated, and the world needs to be equipped to put a stop to it. What are the transformative elements which make these new instruments truly ground-breaking? What is the language used and why are such choices important in tackling this phenomenon effectively? What are the provisions, the tools, the strategies? What are the roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders in the world of work? What are the good practices being adopted, and where do you start when it comes to sensitizing others, building engagement and advocating for positive change? Find out on this six-week e-learning journey.
Governments; employers' and workers' organizations; policymakers and world-of-work representatives wishing to master the content of these new instruments, understand what these imply in terms of implementation, identify costs and risk associated with non-intervention, and acquire tools to sensitize others.
In this learning journey, you will be taken through a step-by-step analysis of the violence and harassment phenomenon in the world of work, through the lens of ILO Convention no. 190 and Recommendation no 206.
You will gain insights into the global 4-years long discussion that led to the adopted texts and motivated fundamental methodological choices with regard to how this phenomenon should be framed and defined, as well as to what measures are required and whose contribution is needed in order to effectively prevent, remedy and eradicate.
You will also consider all such elements within a historical perspective on the international human rights framework dealing with violence from a gender-specific perspective, and compare with the gender-responsive approach adopted by these instruments.
Finally, you will be given practical tools for designing and prototyping a personal advocacy strategy, leverage on the ILO global campaign launching in March 2021, and become an agent of change within your work context.
