Master in Industrial and Employment Relations 2019/2020
In a fast-changing environment (political, economic, social, cultural, technological and as regards skills requirements), in which governments and workers' and employers' organizations are having to contiuously adapt their strategies, a better understanding of the contemporary trends and challenges presented by different industrial and employment relationships is a compelling need. The International Training Centre of the International Labour Organization (ITCILO), in partnership with the University of Turin, Italy, is offering a Master in Industrial and Employment Relations (MIER). It includes a distance-learning phase and a residential phase at the ITCILO campus in Turin, followed by a second distance-learning phase for the preparation of the Master's thesis. The Master's programme aims to develop specialized, multidisciplinary knowledge of industrial and employment relations from a comparative viewpoint. It will provide participants with a deep theoretical and practical understanding of industrial and employment relations systems globally, by examining recent changes and trends in the major economic/geographical areas. It will also offer a range of learning situations in which participants can enhance their analytical and problem-solving skills. The Master's programme combines the sound academic background of the University of Turin with the ITCILO's international training experience. An international approach has been applied to the content, methodology and composition of the faculty.
