Free online course Making Universal Social Protection a Reality



The ILO is launching the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Making Universal Social Protection a Reality”.

This MOOC has been produced by the ILO in collaboration with the French National Social Security School (EN3S) and SDG Academy. It builds on ILO knowledge and field experience on the development of universal social protection systems based on the application of international social security standards, particularly the Social Security (Minimum Standards) Convention, 1952 (No. 102), and the Social Protection Floors Recommendation, 2012 (No. 202).

The MOOC enables learners to understand the key social protection concepts and the strengths and weaknesses of different approaches to social protection. It also provides participants with critical insights into policy options and social protection strategies in the context of decent work and general socio-economic development.

The course provides a useful resource package for policy makers, social partners, civil society organizations, development actors, university students and others who may or may not be directly involved in social protection issues but who work or are likely to work in a related field such as development cooperation, public finances, economic and social development, rural development, environmental issues, etc.
