IFAA FORUM: COVID-19, THE FUTURE OF WORK AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

On Wednesday 28th April 2021, 3 pm

The Institute for African Alternatives (IFAA) marks the forthcoming Workers’ Day with a Public Forum that draws attention to the impact of Covid-19 on the future of work and social justice. 


The disruptions created by the pandemic have radically altered the way we see how work is organised and how workers and social movements can mobilise and organise in varied contexts across the continent. The pandemic has also exacerbated inequalities which has had a devastating impact on already fragmented workers movement. 

To deliberate on the challenges and possibilities that arise in this historical moment, IFAA invites you to join us with Prof Evance Kalula (ILO), Paule Ndessomin (IndustriALL Africa), BabaAye (PSI Global) and Saliem Patel (IFWEA).
