  3. Evidence-based policy making for trade agreements and labour rights

    1 October 2021

    Emerging evidence from constituents of the Asian region shows that there is a large gap in the capacity of the tripartite decision makers on how to better integrate trade within the labour rights issues. ILO’s constituents are requesting assistance in addressing the implications of trade liberalization arrangements on employment, ILS and decent work. The training will provide assistance to constituents in both the use and generation of relevant evidence from a variety of sources, including not only ILO but also national and local sources, including evidence generation through data and metadata analysis. The aim of this online training is to build capacities of ILO’s tripartite constituents using case studies, research papers, guidelines, publicly available online ILO data, other data and information sources for permitting them to comprehend and assess the interrelationship between international trade, ILS and decent work. This training is targeted to policy makers and policy influencers from the Latin America region representing the trade unions and workers, employers representatives as well as government officials from various ministries.

  4. Ethiopia national training on evidence-based policy making

    1 October 2021

    It is widely recognized that evidence (data, research, best practices) is essential for decision and policy making. In practice, the use of evidence in the policy-making touching the world of work is still at its early stages and unevenly practiced. As a result, policies are not as effective as they could or should be in responding to employment and labour market challenges facing the world of work. There is so much information available and yet they are not used appropriately for effective policy making. This training intends to build capacities and skills of the users of research and data and especially the policy-makers, while providing them with the necessary instruments and tools to find, evaluate, and understand the relevant evidence for policy making in their work and influence policies based on evidence in return. The training is part of the broader capacity-building initiative of the ILO in strengthening capacities at various levels such as individual, organizational and societal and includes one-year follow-up activities to ensure learning transfer. This training is targeted to policy makers and policy influencers representing the trade unions and workers, employers representatives as well as government officials from various ministries.

    The changing nature of the labour market and its digitalization constitute an important aspect and challenge for the ILO, especially in regard to promoting the decent work agenda. The rapid growth and globalization of the digital economy during the last decade created new opportunities and challenges which need to be taken into account while conceptualizing labour market and policies.

  6. Latin America regional training on evidence-based policy making for decent work

    It is widely recognized that evidence (data, research, best practices) is essential for decision and policy making.
