Work, Employment and Globalisation (WEG) at the ISS!
WEG - Something for you?
The Specialisation is ideally suited to young professionals interested in labour issues, especially those with an interest in employment creation, labour governance, capabilities for work and the informal economy.
Participants usually have a background in a variety of social and political science disciplines and include Labour Ministry officials, labour market researchers, NGO and trade union researchers and activists as well as other national and international officials in a variety of areas connecting to work and employment.
This mixture of professional backgrounds and the large variety of nationalities and cultures among staff and students provide the exceptional participatory learning environment that characterises the ISS.
The Dreilinden foundation provides a scholarship for an MA student from the Global South and East in the area of decent work for lesbian, gay, trans- and intersexual (LGBT) persons.
We now welcome applications for the 2011/12 academic year at the ISS. more information can be found here: http://www.iss.nl/Portals/Work-Employment-and-Globalization-at-the-ISS/WEG-something-for-you#Costs
I'd appreciate your help in disseminating this information to eligible persons or related organisations!
Decent work sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration, freedom for people to express their concerns, organize and participate in the decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men.
thanks & best regards!
