An introduction to the MNE Declaration
This self-guided E-learning module provides an introduction to the ILO’s Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration) using real cases that highlight how the principles of the MNE Declaration can be put into practice to address a range of labour and employment issues in different contexts.
The module is designed for government officials, and staff in employers’ organizations and workers’ organizations that deal with foreign direct investment (FDI), operations of multinational enterprises and corporate social responsibility (CSR) and their link to decent work. It also targets managers in multinational enterprises, responsible for human resources, corporate social responsibility, community development programmes, public affairs, procurement, supply chain management and labour relations. Those interested in operations of multinational enterprises, CSR, the role of the private sector in development and FDI more broadly, may also find this module useful in their work.
The course offers useful background information and an overview of the principles of the MNE Declaration, including exercises for the participants.
This free course is available on eCampus, the ITCILO's online learning platform.
