Workers’ Guide to Employment and Decent Work for Peace and Resilience Recommendation (No. 205)
PDF File Size: 1.35 MB | Download   
Since its creation in 1919, the ILO has operated on the principle that universal and lasting peace cannot be established or maintained if it is not based on social justice. Every working woman and man can freely claim this aspiration, along with their fair share of the wealth they have helped to generate based on the notion of equal opportunities. However, these aspirations are critically affected by conflicts and disasters. Recommendation No. 205 on Employment and Decent Work for Peace and Resilience was adopted by the International Labour Conference in June 2017 and is concerned with crisis situations arising from conflicts and disasters. Both conflicts and disasters are considered to have commonalities in terms of the impact and consequences on the world of work and beyond. Crisis situations around the world destroy livelihoods, interrupt business activities, and damage workplaces. Societal institutions stop functioning effectively, countless workers lose their jobs and the rights and social protection they are entitled to. As a result, inequalities and social exclusion are worsened, which leads to a lack of respect for labour standards. Certain population groups, including minorities, children, women, the disabled and the elderly, are particularly affected as well as migrants and populations experiencing forced displacement. The world of work clearly suffers from the negative consequences of conflicts and disasters. However, it also plays an important role in preventing and responding to such circumstances, contributing to build peace and resilience – for example by creating decent employment and income-generating opportunities, making basic social services and social protection available, upholding labour rights, building representative and accountable institutions, and promoting social dialogue. This is the focus of Recommendation No. 205, and the purpose of this Workers’ Guide is to familiarize readers with its contents.
