The ITUC Global Rights Index documents restrictions on free speech and protests and increasingly violent attacks on the defenders of workers’ rights. Decent work and democratic rights have grown weaker in almost all countries, while inequality continued to grow.
Which labour rights are most important for democracy? Which are most under pressure from your perspective? And what can we do to defend our space? How can we start building stronger organising campaigns and get more focus back on the core labour standards that are key to all our other struggles? What role can an award like the Arthur Svensson Prize have?
Main speaker, Loredana Carta will present highlights from the brand new ITUC 2019 Global Rights Index which will be published just after the seminar. (2018 index here)
