Trade Union Revitalization

Digital technologies and trade union revitalization in the Arab States region

As part of the “Trade unions in transformation: Actors for change” programme of the ILO Bureau for Workers’ Activities, several regional studies have been commissioned to review innovative practices and positive experiences related to trade union revitalization. This paper explores the role of digital technologies in this process in the Arab States region, focusing on Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon and Oman. It discusses successful and innovative practices with a view to identifying lessons that are relevant to trade unions in other countries and regions as well.
