ILO Flagship Programme

Jobs for Peace and Resilience: Key facts and figures

For over 100 years the ILO has been promoting social justice to make countries and societies more peaceful and resilient by assisting its Constituents with various world of work issues, from the respect of international labour standards to the development of social protection for all.

The ILO flagship programme on Jobs for Peace and Resilience (JPR) was launched in 2016 to contribute to more peaceful and resilient societies through employment, decent work and social dialogue. The JPR translates into tangible action the guidance of ILO's Recommendation 205 on employment and decent work for peace and resilience by combining various ILO technical approaches that create jobs, reinforce skills and promote private sector and local economic development.
