Employment and labour market policies

Employment and labour market policies
© ITCILO/ R. Borgo

The ILO estimates that more than 600 million new jobs will need to be created over the next decade in order to generate sustainable growth and maintain social cohesion.

At national level, a coherent, integrated and well-designed employment policy, which cuts across the macro- and microeconomic dimensions and addresses both labour demand and supply, is of utmost importance to tackle employment related problems. The training activities of the Centre aim to equip participants with the necessary conceptual and operational tools to actively engage in the employment policy process.

At the Centre, challenges and prospects on non-standard forms of employment are analyzed during the ILS Academy

Over the past few decades, in both industrialized and developing countries, there has been a marked shift away from “standard” (i.e. full-time, open-ended, direct) employment to non-standard forms of employment.
