Liv Tørres, Adjunct Professor at the Wits School of Governance and the Executive Director of the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo, will present this seminar.

Social dialogue has developed furthest in the Nordic countries and is closely associated with the strength of the labour market partners and of the collective bargaining system. Consensus about the aim to build consensus is not enough to realise actual social dialogue. One also needs to respect each other, see the value of building each other’s strength and recognise that good decisions are sometimes or often built on all parties both giving and taking.
