Global employment and social challenges: Emerging trends and role of the ILO

The Governing Body periodically reviews global employment and social trends and prospects for internationally coordinated action to strengthen growth. This paper is meant to inform that review. The potential implications for the ILO of the final stages in the preparation of a new United Nations (UN) sustainable development framework are also examined. The Director-General is invited to take into account the Governing Body’s discussion on further research and analysis and the ILO’s support to the UN’s development agenda (see the proposed points for discussion in paragraph 48 and the draft decision in paragraph 49).
