The projects’ goal is to assist countries strengthen and modernise their labour inspection services to enhance their effectiveness and impact. The aim is to promote a more balanced approach between labour law enforcement and compliance and in so doing, improve cooperation between labour inspectorates, workers’ and employers’ organizations and other relevant institutional partners.
