Matters arising out of the work of the 99th Session (2010) of the International Labour Conference

Part I of this paper deals with four cross-cutting issues that are guiding the immediate follow-up work of the Office and its plans to implement the conclusions of the resolution concerning the recurrent discussion on employment adopted at the 99th Session of the Conference. These are: strengthening existing areas of work; responding to new priorities; promoting better national and international policy coherence; and changing work methods. Part II takes up each of the six strategic employment themes covered in the conclusions and describes initial steps taken by the Office and future plans to act on the main priorities identified there to respond more effectively to the realities and needs of ILO Members.
