The ILO Moscow webinar series “Thinking the labour market for a job-rich economic recovery” is a practical response to country needs of evidence-based labour market analysis for facilitating the transition from COVID- 19 immediate crisis responses toward an employment intensive economic recovery.

The main topic for discussion in the Webinar IV will be employment policies for reducing the mismatches between the education system and the labour market and promoting youth job-rich economic recovery.  As a country case will be presented the Azerbaijan transition towards a new inclusive regulatory framework for apprenticeships and on-the-job training modalities. The regional comparative overview will analyze the relationship between education and labour outcomes in the Commonwealth of Independent States’, with focus on youth.

The ILO has been working closely with government and social partners on updating labour market assessments and adjusting national employment strategies in the aftermath of the COVID 19 pandemic in Eastern Europe and Central Asia region. Fresh analysis and policy recommendations have been submitted to tripartite discussions in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Armenia.

Country cases offer a unique opportunity for mutual learning, country-to-country cooperation, extracting lessons learnt and identifying good practices for building a regional perspective on how alternative employment policy responses are implemented.

The series of webinars will help the governments, employer and workers organizations, the academy and practitioners to have a better understanding of the ILO approach to labour market analysis, according to up-to date international standards and how these standards help to reformulate national employment policies.
