EU Strategy to promote Decent working conditions in the world

Would you like to know what the European Commission is doing to reaffirm the EU's commitment to champion decent work both at home and around the world? Get to know about it, through the "Communication on Decent Work Worldwide" here: Communication on decent work (europa.eu)

The EU will reinforce its actions, guided by the four elements of the universal concept of decent work as developed by the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and reflected in the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. These elements include: (1) promoting employment; (2) standards and rights at work, including the elimination of forced labour and child labour; (3) social protection; (4) social dialogue and tripartism. Gender equality and non-discrimination are crosscutting issues in these objectives.
