  5. Fragile-to-Fragile Cooperation and Decent Work: An ILO perspective

    09 November 2015

    With ILO's involvement with fragile-to-fragile cooperation, it has strengthened its relations with g7+ members based on the directives of our South-South and triangular cooperation practices. In fragile States it is crucial to promote partnerships between equals. Mutual trust, horizontal relations and demand-driven objectives characterize such partnerships. The g7+ has recently put forward a New Deal for Engagement in Fragile States. The New Deal proposes key peace building and state building goals, while focusing on new ways of engaging, and identifying commitment strategies. In a similar manner to the South-South and triangular cooperation rationale, the basis for this new cooperation paradigm is the acknowledgment that some beneficiary countries have learnt sufficiently from development.
