Rights and dignity at the workplace are fundamental human rights. However, workersâ€™ rights continue to be violated every day – millions of people worldwide are facing exploitative working hours, poverty wages, humiliation and mistreatment at work. There are estimates that todayâ€™s world has a higher number of slaves than any other time in history.
In this online course the MOOC discusses what Global Workersâ€™ Rights are and which instruments and strategies can be used to implement them. Based on a careful mix of video lectures, readings, online resources and interviews with activists and labour scholars from around the world, you will gain both knowledge and practical skills for furthering workersâ€™ rights worldwide.
In some countries, the online learning experience will be complemented with local workshops and the results of the local discussions will be uploaded into the MOOC for a truly global learning experience.
