This document examines past and current ILO action in fragile States. The Office seeks guidance from the Governing Body on how to further develop its technical cooperation (TC) programme in fragile States. It presents data and lessons learned from TC in fragile and other conflict- and disaster-affected countries. A way forward is suggested for the ILO’s future programme in these countries.
