    Global Employment Trends for Youth: 2011 update

    26 October 2011

    The report presents the latest global and regional labour market trends for youth and examines whether or not the situation that young people face in the labour market has improved or worsened over the year and a half since the release of the special edition of the Global Employment Trends for Youth, August 2010 on the impact of the economic crisis. One year later, with an environment of growing uncertainty in the economic recovery and stalled recovery in the job market, the report draws the unfortunate conclusion that the situation facing youth in the labour market has not improved and that prospects for the future are not much better.

    Philosophical and spiritual perspectives on Decent Work

    02 March 2004

    Describing the findings of a one-year research programme and a related seminar, this book presents a fascinating convergence of views regarding key questions of dignity and the rights of human beings at work, and regarding work itself.
