    29 November 2019

The Journal aims to serve as a stepping stone for the labour movement in its own deliberations on how workers’organizations can react to the fundamental changes that are affecting the world of work, and that it will provide further reflections on the transformation of trade unions these changes might entail.

  2. Assessment of private employment agency service provision in Ethiopia

    13 November 2019

Accordingly, to inform evidence-based policy making the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (MoLSA) of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia in collaboration with the ILO undertook this assessment. This study assesses the effectiveness of the services being provided by PrEAs and identifies existing drawbacks in the services being provided by User Enterprises using PrEAs services.
