Apresentação do curso

This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) explores ILO Recommendation 205 on Employment and Decent Work for Peace and Resilience (2017), the only international normative framework providing guidance for addressing world-of-work issues in response to crisis situations including pandemics, armed conflict, natural disaster, environmental degradation, and forced displacement.

The course provides participants with information and practical knowledge about policies, approaches, tools, methodologies and case studies for the promotion of employment and decent work in fragile, conflict and disaster settings. These can help support crisis prevention, recovery, and the construction of sustainable peace and resilience.

Who are the instructors?

This course is designed and delivered by international experts from the ILO dealing with the promotion of employment and decent work for peace and resilience.

What topics does this course cover?
  1. Learning Block 1 – An overview of Recommendation 205: In this module, participants explore the definition of fragility and the factors that contribute to making a situation “fragile”. They focus on the ILO's mandate to promote peace and resilience and on its role in the Humanitarian-Development-Peace Nexus. Participants also look at the Theory of Change underpinning ILO efforts in the promotion of employment programmes for peace, and learn about the ILO Jobs for Peace and Resilience flagship programme.

  2. Learning Block 2 – An in-depth look at Recommendation 205: In this module, participants deepen their knowledge of the employment and decent work approaches and measures for crisis prevention and response presented in Recommendation 205 across a number of ILO policy areas.

  3. Learning Block 3 – Recommendation 205 in action: In the final module, participants look into the promotion of knowledge sharing andawareness-raising on Recommendation 205 at the country level. This is achieved through the review of key good practices and case studies.
