Format and Methodology
Participants will be exposed to on-going country case studies that have proven successful in curbing informality, and improving the working conditions of millions of workers and economic units in the informal economy. Such practices range from data collection, and analysis of informality, to integrated policy frameworks for promoting transitioning to formality, sectorial policies addressing one target group where informality is most salient, and to implementing a regulatory framework to extend protection and voice to workers and enterprises in the informal economy.
The “Academy” format allows for open and broad-based discussions and learning through the plenary sessions that will focus on key issues currently being debated about informality, as well as the opportunity for a modular approach to individual learning needs through elective sessions allowing each participant to build the learning path that is the most relevant to his/her expectations and professional background ( see timetable below)
Knowledge sharing and national and interregional cross fertilisation between participants will be favoured
