The core areas on which we focus are:
- ILS and constitutional procedures
We train ILO's constituents on campus and at a distance on the ILS procedures of standard setting, submission, ratification, and supervision.
- Freedom of association and collective bargaining (the FOA Programme)
The FOA Programme offers training on ILS pertaining to freedom of association and collective bargaining.
- Forced labour and trafficking
We provide training in the fields of forced labour and trafficking on human beings targeting ILO's constituents, key stakeholders and other professionals concerned with these issues.
- Child labour
Based on relevant ILS, other international instruments and ILO practical experience in the fight against child labour, we offer a wide range of training activities targeting ILO's constituents, key stakeholders and other professionals active in the field.
- Equality in employment and occupation
We run training in ILS concerning equality of opportunity and treatment in employment and occupation, other ILO standards that include provisions on the issue, and international instruments that concern equality.
- Indigenous and tribal peoples
We seek to mainstream the principles of ILO Convention No. 169, the only comprehensive international instrument for protection of indigenous peoples' rights, through training of ILO staff and other professionals concerned with the issue.
Maritime labour standards
We provide training on maritime labour standards and, in particular, the Maritime Labour Convention, 2006, the new instrument setting out seafarer’s rights to decent conditions of work.
ILS for judges and lawyers
We train national judges and lawyers on the sources of international labour law as tools for dispute settlement.
ILS for journalists and media professionals
We are running a pilot course for journalists and media professionals that aims to equip them with the knowledge and skills to use ILS and the work of ILO's supervisory bodies in their reports, thereby raising public awareness of internationally recognized rights and their relevance to local labour and social issues.
- ILS and socially responsible enterprises
We run training for trainers in implementing international labour standards in the workplace.
