Course: Promoting Labour Standards through Corporate Social Responsibility - instruments and practices

Type: Course
When: 22 - 26 October 2012
Where: International Training Centre of the ILO (ITC-ILO), Turin, Italy
Contact(s): sdti@itcilo.org

This course will look at the role of CSR in today’s globalized world and at the potential of private initiatives to contribute to the respect of labour rights and the achievement of “decent work for all”. It will provide participants with an overall understanding of the current trends and challenges in CSR, and with an overview of ILO and other international instruments that can assist those engaging in dialogue with multinationals and other enterprises.

Particular attention will be paid to International Labour Standards and the ILO Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration). The MNE Declaration speaks to enterprises of all sizes and to governments about policies to attract the type of foreign direct investment (FDI) that is more likely to promote decent work, and about how to create an enabling environment which encourages companies to pursue their voluntary initiatives. This instrument clearly reflects the central role of freedom of association, collective bargaining and good industrial relations and clarifies the responsibilities of the parties.
