In a fast-changing environment (political, economic, social, cultural, technological, skills) in which governments, workers’ and employers’ organizations have to adapt their strategies continuously, a better understanding of the contemporary trends and challenges of different industrial and employment relations in the world is becoming 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’s Programme in Industrial and Employment Relations. 

This one-year programme, held in English, includes a distance-learning phase, a residential phase at the ITCILO campus in Turin, Italy, followed by a second distance learning phase for the preparation of the Master’s thesis. 

The Master’s Programme in Industrial and Employment Relations aims at developing specialized multidisciplinary knowledge in the field 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 in the world, by looking into recent changes and trends in the major economic geographical areas. 

Furthermore, it will 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, the methodology as well as to the composition of the faculty. 

The Master’s Programme is relevant to participants from both developing and developed countries who will have an opportunity to share their different experiences.
