The ILO is organizing the first Technical tripartite webinar for the ratification campaign of the Employment Service Convention, 1948, (No.88 ) and the Private Employment Agencies Convention, 1997, (No. 181 ). This webinar will feature presentations on the topic and the campaign by ILO officials, as well as from government representatives from ILO member States that have ratified one or both conventions.
Representatives from these countries and from the Workers’ and Employers’ Groups of the ILO Governing Body will share lessons learnt and the impact of these ratifications (and their implementation) on national labour markets.
The discussion will also focus on the relevance of Conventions 88 and Convention 181 in promoting a human-centred recovery from the COVID-19 crisis that is inclusive, sustainable, and resilient.
Participants who register to attend will have the opportunity to ask questions of the panellists.
This interactive webinar aims to provide a launching platform to increase the visibility of the ratification campaign and stress the relevance of these Conventions in supporting well-functioning labour markets and the policies that impact labour supply and labour demand, the matching of workers and jobs, and the acquisition of skills.
The webinar will take place on 12 May 10:00 – 12:00 Central European Time, via Zoom conference platform.
