WHO IS THIS FOR? This manual can be used by various kinds of labour organisations, including trade unions, labour NGOs and informal workers’ groups.
It was developed to serve as an educational tool that grassroots organisers can use to build up workers’ awareness of social protection, and to assist them in formulating their own demands for social protection. It encourages grassroots workers to look beyond traditional definitions of social protection by examining it in the context of current oppressive economic and political structures. It is vitally important for grassroots workers to develop their own understanding around social protection based on their experiences and struggles.
