The school will bring together participants primarily drawn from the trade unions, labour academia to dialogue about how the world of work has changed and how African unions have to redefine their role to drive the structural social and economic changes in favor of labour. While the bulk of the participants shall consist of senior trade union leaders, the youth and women trade union activists shall also be participating. Additionally, civil society actors as well as labour academicians including researchers and educators shall be invited to participate.
