Industrial relations and social dialogue

Tripartite Exchange Seminar 'Summer Forum'

K, 19/10/2022
R, 21/10/2022

On 19 -21 October 2022, in Dublin, Eurofound will pilot a 'Summer Forum' – a tripartite exchange seminar aiming to improve the capacity of social partners and governments to engage effectively in social dialogue.

The Forum addresses national level social partners and in particular early-career professionals in trade union and employer organisations as well as from government departments and other relevant public bodies.

Programme on-site seminar - 

 

 

Objectives

The Forum will provide time and space for the social partners and government representatives to:

  • exchange experiences and initiatives on social dialogue, collective bargaining, employment and social policies,
  • foster a better culture of social dialogue at national level, within the framework of a shared understanding of what constitutes the added value of the European social model,
  • raise the value and awareness of social dialogue and its contribution to economic and social progress in the EU through the dissemination and visibility of their outcomes,
  • foster forward-looking debates and building trust for more effective social dialogue.

It is not an arena for social dialogue or training in negotiations.

A number of possible thematic fields for the pilot event have been identified by Eurofound:

  • Managing the twin transition – strengthening social dialogue in national reform programmes and the implementation of the RRPs
  • Social dialogue and delivering on the European Pillar of Social Rights – Visions for social dialogue in uncertain times
  • Labour market developments and implications for jobs and skills – the role of social dialogue and collective bargaining

Practical background information

The pilot will consist of three elements:

  1. An online preparatory session (October 12, 2022);
  2. A face to-face exchange seminar held at Eurofound’s premises in Dublin (October 19-21, 2022), see the programme for the on-site seminar; and
  3. An online follow-up exchange (early December 2022, date tbc).

Participants are expected to engage fully with all three elements and to ensure the agreement of their employer/organisation for their participation.
