  2. Measurement of decent work

    21 August 2008

    This discussion paper, presented at the Tripartite Meeting of Experts on the Measurement of Decent Work in 2008, has been concerned with the measurement of decent work and, more specifically, how progress towards decent work can be monitored at the country level. It began by discussing which implications could be drawn from the nature of the Decent Work Agenda for the measurement of decent work, and emphasized that rights at work are relevant to all aspects of the Decent Work Agenda. On the basis of this discussion, it concluded that two types of information are needed to monitor progress towards decent work at the country level: statistical indicators and information on rights at work and the legal framework for decent work.
