    A just transition for all: Can the past inform the future?

    11 June 2015

    2015 is a decisive year for global agreements on Sustainable Development and climate change. The ILO calls for a just transition for all towards a greener and more socially sustainable economy. This Journal is focussing on drawing lessons from a few transition experiences in order to analyse how successfully (or not) these processes were managed in the past and how future transitions might be handled in a just manner. Challenges such as policy coherence, consultations and participation by all relevant stakeholders are addressed and lessons learned on these issues are highlighted in the Journal.

    Freedom of Association and Collective Bargaining Diagnostic Process

    03 December 2014

    The ILO, with generous funding from the Government of Sweden, has developed a diagnostic process to support the tripartite constituents in the promotion of freedom of association and collective bargaining rights. This process was designed to be adapted to different national contexts and can be used in three sectors: the rural, export processing and domestic work sectors. The full involvement of the tripartite partners is integral to the process, and allows for the comprehensive development of a forward-looking understanding of the practices, perceptions and awareness of freedom of association and collective bargaining in national contexts. On this rigorous basis, the constituents are supported in identifying, and implementing, their own priorities to realize full freedom of association and collective bargaining rights in their country. The ILO has already successfully applied the diagnostic process in Bangladesh, Brazil, Indonesia, Jordan, Kenya, Malawi, the Philippines and South Africa. More detailed information on the process can be obtained from the attached documents or FPRW@ilo.org
