Webinar two - Social Dialogue and Human Rights Due Diligence

Internationally principles call on enterprises to identify, prevent, mitigate and account for how they address adverse impacts on internationally recognised human rights.

However, their practical implementation often presents challenges, with stakeholders grappling with varying concerns. Social dialogue emerges as a pivotal solution for reconciling these tensions and establishing a win-win scenario that serves the interests of both workers and employers.

The world of work will face major challenges in the transition towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies.
