Public Employment Services and the Future of Work. Training Manual for the CIS Regional Network for Youth Employment Promotion

The Manual has been developed as part of the ILO technical assistance to the national reform of the Public Employment Service implemented by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation; furthermore benefited from the thematic policy discussions, best practices and country experiences identified during the ILO and the Commonwealth of Independent States sub-regional annual conferences on youth employment, and finally builds on the several trainings rolled out for strengthening the national employment services in Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. The project “Partnerships for Youth Employment in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS)”, Phase II, a public-private cooperation initiative between the ILO and a Russian company LUKOIL, provided technical assistance, financial support and implemented all these activities aiming to mainstream youth and gender sensitive employment policies into national development strategies.
