  1. ILO Research News 1/2014

    07 November 2014

    The world of work is experiencing significant challenges. Many advanced economies are facing significant unemployment and labour market inactivity, notably as a result of the global crisis which erupted in 2008. In emerging and developing countries, progress in reducing working poverty and informal employment has slowed down. Everywhere, new technology, changes in global production patterns and population ageing lead to new job opportunities, while also exerting a profound impact on the linkages between large enterprises and their suppliers, and on the nature of work itself. Income inequalities tend to widen. To shed light on these trends, the ILO has strengthened its research functions. The aim is to help discern the factors at work and to provide evidence-based analysis on how policies can best respond to emerging employment and social challenges. ILO Research News will present regular updates of the outcomes of this work.
