Social Dialogue in the education sector: An overview

Working Paper 256

This working paper aims to provide an overview of the state of social dialogue in the primary and secondary education sector in different regions. It presents a regional summary of the climate for social dialogue, its application in the education sector in countries of each region, as well as a number of more in-depth country case studies to underscore important points on use of various forms of social dialogue to make decisions affecting the teaching profession.
The climate for social dialogue is provided by examining the ratifications of specific ILO Conventions and the indicators of practical application of standards.
