Information Resources

The Information Centre in the ILO Decent Work Technical Support Team and Country Office for Central and Eastern Europe is a leading source of knowledge on the world of work and work-related issues in Central and Eastern Europe. It serves as a hub for information on established and emerging work issues, labour standards, social security, labour migration, equality and discrimination at workplace and the work-related aspects of economic and social development in the region.
While the physical collection compromises mainly ILO publications since 1994, the Centre also offers access to a wide range of online information services and products to facilitate research into the world of work.

The Budapest Information Centre contributes to the development of Labordoc, the world's leading database on the world of work. It serves as a knowledge base of key information on work issues, sustainable livelihoods, and the work-related aspects of economic and social development, technological change and human rights. It provides an ever-increasing number of links to online publications. Labordoc is the authoritative source for ILO publications.
The Centre is also part of the ILO’s Global Information Network to improve the effectiveness of the ILO’s information services throughout the world, to disseminate and provide access to the ILO’s knowledge resources. The ILO Budapest Information Centre also works closely with other ILO libraries/documentation centres in the region and the ILO Library at Headquarters in Geneva.

Visitors from inside and outside the ILO are welcome to make use of the Centre's collection.
