Arab States

Select to magnify the image What began as a crisis in finance markets has rapidly become a global jobs crisis. Unemployment is rising. The number of working poor is increasing. Businesses are going under. Concern is growing over the balance, fairness and sustainability of the sort of globalization we have had in the run up to the financial crash. The International Labour Organization, representing actors of the real economy, that is governments, working together with representatives of employers and workers organizations, is playing its role within the UN and multilateral system to support its constituents as they seek to weather the crisis, prepare for recovery and shape a new fair globalization. The Decent Work Agenda provides the policy framework to confront the crisis.
