The Global Labour University
is currently accepting applications to its 'Engage' programme on Labour
Policies and Globalisation. Trade Unionists are invited to apply by November
The Engage programme is a policy oriented course that combines academic
learning with practical trade union work. The course consists of two components:
the first part is an academic training programme that takes place over
3,5 months and is taught at the Berlin School of Economics and Law and
the University of Kassel. The academic programme is then followed by two
months of field work during which participants develop a policy project/campaign
with a national or international trade union organisation.
The 2012 course has two thematic priorities:
The role of multinational companies
in the global economy, and trade union strategies and campaigns of
cross border solidarity and networking. This theme is implemented
in cooperation with Global Union Federations.
Global income security through
minimum wages and social transfers. This theme is implemented in cooperation
with the ITUC and the ILO.
