Public-Private partnerships

ILO public-private partnerships on social dialogue

Social dialogue between governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations fosters socio-economic progress, social equity and stability. It also plays a vital role in promoting democratic decision-making and managing the globalization process. The first PPP on social dialogue and industrial relations was signed in 2008.

Since then, a further 65 projects (accounting for nearly 26 per cent of the total number of PPPs) have been signed in this area, with a total budget in the region of US$ 14 million (19.07 per cent of the total PPP budget). Four major areas are covered: social dialogue and industrial relations; labour administration and labour law; decent work in economic sectors; and employers and workers’ organizations.
