Sectoral meetings

Consensus building: international tripartite meetings

Several times per year, representatives of governments, employers’ and workers’ organizations from different countries and regions meet at the ILO Headquarters in Geneva, to participate in tripartite sectoral international meetings and global dialogue fora. Based on the most up-to-date research produced by the ILO, the tripartite representatives meet to debate emerging issues, main trends and challenges of their sector.
 
Consensus reached during such sectoral meetings results in recommendations for policy and action in the sectors. These recommendations, adopted at the end of the meetings, serve as a basis for the development of national policies and programmes, and provide guidance to constituents at international as well as country level.
