Programme 'Labour Relations in a Globalized World' at the Europäischen Akademie der Arbeit (EAdA)

The Europäische Akademie der Arbeit in der Universität Frankfurt am Main (EAdA) - an established academic institution specialised in labour relations - invites participants connected to Israel to apply for its International Programme 'Labour Relations in a Globalized World'. The twelve-month programme in Frankfurt, Germany aims at academic qualification in law, economics and sociology with a focus on labour relations through an international lens.

The Academy:

The Europäischen Akademie der Arbeit in der Universität Frankfurt am Main (European Academy of Labour at the University of Frankfurt am Main - EAdA) has been offering advanced training opportunities to professionals  for 100 years. Its goal is to enable committed employees to exercise their participation rights effectively and in all areas of social and economic life. With its international programme, the EAdA strives to expand its perspective globally and promote social exchange, especially between Israel and Germany. This study programme, created in cooperation with the Hans Böckler Foundation, offers interested parties a scholarship-supported course at the academy.

The programme:

The target group of the programme, which will start in October 2022, is socially-engaged people connected to Israel who have an interest in pursuing a career in the field of labour relations in trade unions, employers’ associations, political parties, public institutions or non-governmental organisations. Both Israel and Germany are forerunners in high-tech industries and innovations. They both have a long history of strong labour movements. With this programme, the  EAdA aims to contribute to the academic, social and cultural ties between the two countries.

The programme offers qualification in labour relations in the contexts of economics, law, and sociology with theoretical and practical dimensions. Participants will have the chance of advancing their German by attending a four-week intensive German course beforehand in Frankfurt.

The full-time course for international participants is bilingual, in German and English. In addition, the students will get to know important companies and political institutions on site. In order to facilitate this full-time study, students will receive a grant that covers travel, accommodation and living expenses.
