Transitioning to the formal economy
What types of formalization initiatives have been successful? What works at each of the different levels: national, regional, and global? How can we learn from failure? This global forum is a place for conversation about best practices in the transition to the formal economy.Researchers and practitioners, such as ILO constituents and policy makers, from public institutions
Training methods include roundtable discussions and thematic sessions
Subject matter experts from Australia, England, India, and Zimbabwe will guide conversations
Participants are encouraged to submit working papers on the transition to formality
The Global Knowledge-Sharing Forum is the world platform for sharing knowledge on what has worked in the quest for decent work through formalization of the economy at the national, regional and global levels. Participants in the Global Forum will discuss various practices in supporting the transition to a formal economy, and will draw conclusions regarding enabling parameters. The report of the GKSF will summarize such experiences for dissemination among a wider audience.
The GKSF targets formalization researchers and practitioners (ILO constituents, policy-makers at various levels from other public institutions, including ministries of finance, planning, social affairs, statistics, etc.) who want to share their experiences (research, studies, policies, projects, impact assessment); officials from countries with experiences of effective implementation and monitoring of policies; and persons wishing to benefit from such a wealth of knowledge.
This forum aims to draw conclusions and summarize experiences on the transition to the formal economy.
Participants engage in open, interactive discussion with policy makers, social partners, and institutional officials.
The goal of this course is to assess, build upon, and implement knowledge of economic formalization on the global scale.
