Workshops on "agency work and its role in the labour market" and on "labour administration and good governance".

In the context of the Italian-funded project “Promoting good governance and decent work in the Mediterranean through improved labour administration and social dialogue” (INT/08/11/ITA), the Arab Centre for Labour Administration and Employment (ACLAE) along with the Algerian Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security (Mr. Tayeb Louh), the International Training Centre of the ILO and LAB/ADMIN, carried out two joint workshops (3-4 and 5-6 October). The first workshop dealt with agency work and its role in the labour market. It included participants from Algeria, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia. The second workshop on labour administration and good governance brought together 30 Algerian participants as well as French and Spanish experts who shared their own national experiences on the topic. The activity was fortunate to have Minister Tayeb Louh speak at the opening session. He touched on the themes of the two workshops as well as offering examples from his own country on the measures adopted or planned by his own government to promote decent work and development. LAB/ADMIN was represented by its Director, Giuseppe Casale and Moussa Oumarou, Senior Labour Administration Specialist. The workshops were widely covered by the local press and their conclusions and recommendations are available from LAB/ADMIN upon request.
