Presentazione del corso

International organizations are under an obligation to offer their staff fair employment conditions and effective means of employment dispute resolution. This requirement is not only a direct consequence of the immunities enjoyed by international organizations, but also reflects the aspiration of global organizations to attract and retain a talented and diverse workforce by offering a respectful and enabling workplace. The increasing number of employees affected by managerial decisions on the part of international organizations, as well as the growing judicialization of employment disputes, points to the need to improve the ability of international organizations to prevent and manage conflict effectively.
