Information note: Social dialogue: Promoting sound governance, inclusive growth and sustainable development

The present information note on social dialogue aims to inform practitioners in development cooperation of the EU and of EU Member states about the added value of social dialogue in promoting sound governance, inclusive growth and sustainable development. It encourages them to target and fully involve social partners – as key actors of development – in EU and EU Member states projects across the world. This guide is supported by the ILO Bureau for workers’ activities and the Bureau for employers’ activities within the ILO as well as by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the International Organization of Employers (IOE), which provide the Secretariats for the Workers’ and Employers’ Groups in the ILO Governing Body and International labour Conference.
