These two publications on Integrating Trade and Decent Work provide crucial insights into aligning trade and labour policies for promoting decent work and equitable growth. The first volume offers a detailed framework for analysing trade's impact on labour markets, while the second volume explores labour issues in trade and investment frameworks.
The high-level seminar will present key findings from the SUPPORT project, focusing on aligning trade policies with labour market institutions for sustainable development. The event features a high-level panel, including ILO, UNCTAD, and WTO representatives, to discuss innovative strategies and best practices in the trade-labor nexus.
An important question related to labour provisions in trade agreements is how these mechanisms – which are detailed in the trade agreements – work in practice, particularly in the context of a labour dispute.
- Assessing the distributional effects of trade on the labour market using decent work indicators (under the ASSESS project);
- Supporting sustainable development through the alignment of trade policies and domestic labour market institutions so as to reduce inequalities, and gaps in social protection and poverty (under the SUPPORT project);
- Implementing activities to bridge capacity gaps and support policymakers and the social partners in engaging more effectively in dialogue on trade and labour market policies (under the IMPLEMENT project (forthcoming)).
