ILO-AICESIS Conference

Social Dialogue and the Future of Work

The International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Association of Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions (AICESIS) and the Economic and Social Council of Greece (OKE) are jointly organizing a Conference on “Social Dialogue and the Future of Work”. The Conference is organized in the framework of the ILO’s Director General’s Future of Work Centenary Initiative and the cooperation agreement between AICESIS and ILO.

The objective of the Conference is to discuss the important transformations that are taking place in the world of work and to identify actions Economic and Social Councils and Similar Institutions (ESC-Sls) can take to help shape the future of work in a manner that best serves the interest of employers, workers and society at large. The conference will foster and promote the sharing of good practices regarding policy responses designed to mitigate challenges related to the changing world of work. A worldwide survey of ESC-Sls was conducted to review the roles played and challenges faced by ESC-Sls in addressing the impact of technological and demographic changes, climate change and globalization and to capture the very diverses initiatives ESC-Sls have undertaken in this regard. To foster discussions at the conference, a background paper, which provides an overview of survey responses, has been prepared.
The event will bring together tripartite representatives of economic and social councils and similar institutions from all regions, along with experts from international organizations.
