    About the ILO in Slovenia

    Slovenia is a member state of the ILO 1992 after it became independent.

    The ILO has assisted Slovenia in its economic and labour market transformation and in its accession to the EU in 2004. Main areas of work included establishing and strengthening independent workers’ and employers’ organizations, social dialogue and tripartism, supporting the development of new labour market policies, programmes and institutions, technical assistance in labour law reform and in the regular launch of labour force surveys, supporting pension reform and sustainable social security system as well as combating poverty and social exclusion.

    Since 2004, the ILO’s work has mainly focused on different aspects of pension reform or social protection system, youth labour market disadvantage as well as on working and employment conditions. Further ILO studies examined the impact of the recent economic crisis on social dialogue and industrial relations or on the pension system.
