Tip: the discussion should first establish the factual basis and then consider the actual implementation of the respective policies and actions.
  1. Does the government of your country recognize and protect freedom of association, collective bargaining and tripartism?

  2. Does the national development framework promote tripartite social dialogue with constituents so as to define, consult or decide on policies, programmes and activities?

  3. Do formal tripartite social dialogue and labour relations institutions exist in the country, and, if so, are they operational?

  4. Do tripartite social dialogue institutions/mechanisms include other interest groups beyond the tripartite ILO constituency?

  5. Does government make use of tripartite social dialogue mechanisms in formulating the national development framework?

  6.  Are there any capacity-building programmes for workers’ organizations and employers' organizations organized by the Ministry in charge of labour?

  7. Do UN agencies (other than the ILO) represented in the country maintain regular contacts with social partners? What is the nature, regularity and purpose of these contacts?

  8. Do development partners cooperate with or provide support to social partners?
