  2. 8th European Regional Meeting

    The 8th European Regional Meeting (ERM) will provide the space for governments and worker and employer organisations, from across Europe and Central Asia, to come together and shape the ILO's future strategy in the European and Central Asian member countries of the ILO. There will also be a high level panel discussion with Prime Ministers from several European countries and representatives from worker and employer organisations.

  3. 7th ILO European Regional Meeting: "East - West: A common future"

    Every four years, the regions of the ILO meet to discuss the most relevant workplace issues of the day. In 2005, the 7th European Regional Meeting of the ILO has been convened under the theme "East-West: A common future".

  4. 6th ILO European Regional Meeting

    The meeting came at a time of improving labour market performance in Europe. The ILO report pointed out, however, that "the persistence of high rates of unemployment in many Western European countries continues to be a fundamental economic and social problem and is still an important source of poverty." In particular, the ILO noted that "long-term unemployment remains stubbornly high, leaving a significant number of individuals effectively excluded from the labour market." Levels of youth unemployment have also remained high in some countries.
