ACTRAV - both at headquarters, in the regions and at the International Training Centre in Turin - publishes a wide variety of manuals, brochures and practical guides on a broad spectrum of issues of interest to workers.
Thanks to its close ties with trade union organizations across the world, its presence in the field in various regions and to its training activities, ACTRAV is at the centre of a vast network for information on the trade union movement. This information is placed at the service of the International Labour Office and its constituents and of the public at large through the media, universities and NGOs.
The principal vehicles for this information are in addition to its web pages:
Until recently ACTRAV published the quarterly review Labour Education in three languages English, French and Spanish, devoted to analysis and forward studies. It drew on the best specialists from the world of work and dealt with topics of burning issues.
Starting in 2009 a new ACTRAV publication replaced Labour Education. The International Journal of Labour Research was established to provide a vehicle for disseminating recent research on labour and social policies from trade union researchers and academics around the world. This journal is multi-disciplinary and will be of interest to trade union researchers, labour ministries and academics of all relevant disciplines worldwide - industrial relations, sociology, law, economics and political science. Each focuses on a specific theme and the journal is published twice a year in English, French and Spanish.
