A round-table forum on Friday, 18 September will be of particular interest to the delegates, as Judge Dennis Davis, Judge of the Labour Appeal Court and President of the Competition Appeal Court will chair a case study of South Africa’s Labour Relations Act (LRA) 20 years into democracy, with a particular focus on whether ILO principles have contributed to workable labour relations.  Forum members will include ILO experts who assisted in drafting South Africa’s 1995 LRA together with leading representatives of South Africa’s social partners.
