  16. Employment policy implementation mechanisms across countries

    08 December 2017

    The ILO and its constituents have made significant progress in developing national employment policies (NEPs). However, unless appropriate institutional arrangements can be put in place to ensure their timely and effective implementation, even sound policies may not produce the desired results. To respond to the increasing requests from its constituents for assistance in NEP implementation, the ILO launched a research project on “a comparative analysis of employment policy implementation mechanisms in selected countries”. Case studies2 and a synthesis report were published in the form of working papers. This research brief presents the synthesis: it defines NEP implementation mechanisms by three pillars – coordination structure, accountability system and support system – and examines the similarities and differences in selected countries.

  19. Employment policy implementation mechanisms in Germany and the United Kingdom

    08 December 2017

    The ILO and its constituents have made significant progress in developing national employment policies (NEPs). However, unless appropriate institutional arrangements can be put in place to ensure timely and effective implementation, even sound policies may not produce the desired results. To respond to the increasing requests from its constituents for assistance in NEP implementation, the ILO launched a research project on “a comparative analysis of employment policy implementation mechanisms in selected countries. Case studies and a synthesis report were published as working papers”.2 Based on those studies, this research brief looks at the mechanisms for coordination, accountability and support to employment policy implementation in Germany and the United Kingdom.

  20. Employment policy implementation mechanisms in the European Union

    08 December 2017

    The ILO and its constituents have made significant progress in developing national employment policies (NEPs). However, unless appropriate institutional arrangements can be put in place to ensure their timely and effective implementation, even sound policies may not produce the desired results. To respond to the increasing requests from its constituents for assistance with NEP implementation, the ILO launched a research project on “a comparative analysis of employment policy implementation mechanisms in selected countries”. Case studies2 and a synthesis report were published as working papers. This Research brief presents the mechanisms, accountability and financing systems for employment policy implementation under the European Semester framework in the European Union (EU).
