  1. Towards a better future for women and work: Voices of women and men

    19 July 2019

    ILO, in collaboration with Gallup, surveyed men and women in 2016 to understand their perceptions about women and work. The results, based on interviews with nearly 149,000 adults in 142 countries and territories, suggest that women might find support in their quest for productive employment and decent work coming from a rather unexpected source: men. Gender equality is still far from being achieved, and the findings show real divides still exist in many regions of the world. But it also appears men and women are not always as far apart in their attitudes as conventional wisdom might lead them – and governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations – to assume.

  4. The Driving Force Birth and Evolution of Tripartism - The Role of the ILO Workers' Group

    18 June 2019

    Beyond stating that the International Labour Organization has, since 1919, had a unique tripartite structure, with the participation of governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations, not much has been written about how tripartism actually works. The book gives examples of the dynamics at work between the three groups of the ILO and explains how, over time, the force that has driven its agenda has been the Workers’Group.

  10. Gender and Youth Employment in the Commonwealth of Independent States

    17 May 2018

    The study was commissioned in the context of the ILO project “Partnerships for Youth Employment in the CIS” implemented by the ILO Decent Work Technical Support Team and Country Office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia with financial support of the Russian private company PAO LUKOIL. The study covers selected CIS countries; namely, Republic of Azerbaijan, Republic of Armenia, Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, and the Russian Federation. The study reviews the gender dimensions and gaps in employment trends, situations of education and training, as well as employment placements, highlighting disadvantages and discrimination young women and men face in the world of work in these countries. While all countries have established equality in education, training and employment opportunities in national laws, there remain gender differences in the labour market outcomes between young women and men. The study undertakes gender analysis of the reasons behind such gendered patterns of employment and labour market outcomes in various relevant countries where there is also a variation of gender differences in their labour markets.
