Global Jobs Pact Country Scan: Argentina

The Argentinian Scan has two objectives: first, to describe the impact of the global financial crisis on Argentina from the second half of 2008 onwards by analysing its impact on relevant macroeconomic variables, on employment and on social protection; and second, to review public policy responses adopted in all areas covered by the Pact.

The first part, “Overview of the crisis impact on decent work in Argentina”, provides an evidence-based overview of the impact of the crisis on the economy, on employment and on the labour market. The second part, entitled “Crisis response and recovery policies”, provides detailed and systematic information on crisis response and recovery policies.
Finally, the third part provides general guidelines on how the policies adopted may contribute to “Shaping a fair and sustainable globalization”.
