This morning, nine participants attended the lecture given by Emeritus Professor from the Faculty of Social Policy and Administration, Hosei University, Tokyo.
The professor illustrated the ILO Conventions and Recommendations and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=199
It was a great opportunity to learn about the international framework for employment of those with disabilities.
The participants enthusiastically listened to the lecture and raised a number of questions and comments, applying the ILO’s norms to their own countries.
Thanks must go to the professor for his time and talk. The participants could all enhance their understanding towards the ILO mission and the important concept of “decent work.”
