Women and the Future of Work - Call for papers

ILO issues a call for research on Women and the Future of Work in Asia and the Pacific

The ILO, sponsored by the Australian Government’s Department of Employment, has launched a call for research papers to examine the opportunities and challenges of the future at work for women (Deadline: 15 September 2017; Due date extended to Monday, 18 September 2017).

News | 14 September 2017
There was an overwhelming positive response to the call for proposals. We sincerely thank all of those who sent theirs in. The selection process was completed by the Technical Advisory Committee. The selected papers will be up on the 'Women and the Future of Work in Asia and the Pacific' Conference website by mid-January 2018.

Call for Papers, deadline 15 September 2017 (Due date extended to Monday, 18 September 2017)

The selected research papers submitted as a result of this Call, will serve as the basis for discussion at a regional ‘Women and the Future of Work in the Asia-Pacific’ Conference to be held in Bangkok, Thailand in early 2018. The resulting evidence and discussion on where best to invest efforts and resources to promote women’s full participation in the future of work will be summarized in a Conference report, which will be submitted to the global ‘Women at Work’ and the ‘Future of Work’ ILO Centenary Initiatives that will culminate in the 2019 International Labour Conference.
