Please join us at the next Employment Research Unit (ERU) seminar on the 19th of April at 12:30 (room 0.24/0.25 PTC and Online) where we will present and discuss the book “70 years of the ILO Committee of Freedom of Association: a reliable compass in any weather”, with editors Karen Curtis, Chief, ILO Freedom of Association Branch, International Labour Standards Department, and Oksana Wolfson Senior Legal Officer, International Labour Standards Department, ILO.
The book commemorates the seven decades of the CFA’s efforts in promoting respect for freedom of association. It highlights the Committee’s pioneering role and its extensive impact in this area. The contributions reflect careful consideration of country-specific situations and the guidance provided by the CFA. Many of the articles highlight the CFA’s pioneering role in linking freedom of association with civil liberties, a recurring theme throughout the volume. The CFA’s regional significance, its impact on specific cases, and its response to persistent challenges, including issues surrounding organizing the informal economy and the gender dimension of freedom of association and how the CFA can be utilized to ensure that this fundamental right is accessible to all individuals are among the discussed topics.
The book is accesible here:
Tea/Coffee will be available for those attending. Those who cannot make it to campus can join us on Zoom following this link:
