Managing Conflicts and Disasters: Exploring Collaboration between Employers’ and Workers’ Organizations

Posted on by

(CC) Mhmd Gafar/FreeimagesThe International Labour Organization (ILO) has just published “Managing Conflicts and Disasters: Exploring Collaboration between Employers’ and Workers’ Organizations“.

This publication looks at the role that employers and workers, through their respective organizations, play in crisis situations arising from conflict and disaster. It explores the leadership function that employer and business membership organizations (EBMOs) have deployed to maintain an environment for continued economic activity and the key role that workers’ organizations take to assist workers, in particular those who have been made vulnerable by a crisis. The report importantly examines how EBMOs and workers’ organizations have collaborated through social dialogue and other means of collective action to promote peace, prevent crises, enable recovery and build resilience.

The report is available from the ILO website.
