The ILO in Syria

  • © ILO

    The Syrian Arab Republic (Syria) has been a member of the ILO since 1947 and has ratified 50 ILO Conventions, including all eight core Conventions. In 2008 the ILO extended its cooperation with Syria through the country’s first Decent Work Country Programme (DWCP), the ILO's main vehicle for delivery of support to countries. The ILO is currently restarting technical cooperation projects in the country, and also assists Syrian nationals in neighbouring countries as part of its Response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

  1. National Study on Worst Forms of Child Labour in Syria

    The need for such a study stemmed from the awareness of the danger of child labour and its violation of child rights as stipulated in the Syrian Constitution and the international agreements and conventions ratified by Syria. The lack of new and comprehensive studies tackling child labour has further intensified the need to conduct this research.
