    08 December 2017

    The ILO and its constituents have made significant progress in developing national employment policies (NEPs). However, unless appropriate institutional arrangements can be put in place to ensure timely and effective implementation, even sound policies may not produce the desired results. To respond to the increasing requests from its constituents for assistance in NEP implementation, the ILO launched a research project on “a comparative analysis of employment policy implementation mechanisms in selected countries. Case studies and a synthesis report were published as working papers”.2 Based on those studies, this research brief looks at the mechanisms for coordination, accountability and support to employment policy implementation in Germany and the United Kingdom.
