Virtual launch event

Virtual launch of the ILO report “Public employment services and active labour market policies for transitions: Responses to mega trends and crises”

This online launch event presents the main finding of the ILO report “Public employment services and active labour market policies for transitions: Responses to mega trends and crises.”



The ILO has recently published its first global report on public employment services (PES) and active labour market policies (ALMPs). It explores their role in mitigating the labour market disruptions stemming from the COVID-19 crisis and potential future crises. Additionally, it investigates the adaptive measures and innovative strategies these institutions have employed to navigate the evolving world of work during the past two decades.

Its main findings will be presented at an online launch event organised by the ILO, with the participation of the World Employment Confederation (WEC), the World Association of Public Employment Services (WAPES) and the World Bank (WB). The event will be held in English.

The report can be accessed in this link.
