Promotion of Decent Work in Situations of Fragility


What is the Supporting Initiative on the Promotion of Decent Work in Situations of Fragility?

In fragile situations, livelihoods are destroyed, businesses interrupted, workplaces damaged and millions of workers lose their jobs and the social protection that often goes with them.

Moreover, the institutions that provide for social protection, basic needs and law and order are often compromised or destroyed. Lack of respect for core labour standards, inequality and social exclusion are common characteristics of these situations.

The ILO’s response to this evolving situation is the promotion of decent work and income-generating activities, building resilience in the transition to peace and the recovery from crisis. In addition, the ILO supports efforts to provide basic social services and social protection, uphold rights, build institutions and promote social dialogue for the establishment or re-establishment of stable and democratic societies.
