Inclusion of Refugees & Displaced Persons in the Labour Market with a Humanitarian Development Nexus Focus:

A SOUTH-SOUTH AND TRIANGULAR COOPERATION (SSTC) INITIATIVE BETWEEN LEBANON, JORDAN, TURKEY, EGYPT, IRAQ AND ETHIOPIA

The Knowledge Sharing Event focuses to share what are the good practices in the inclusion of refugees and displaced persons in the labour market with a humanitarian-development nexus. Participants to the event will be Government officials, ILO’s social partners and development practitioners working in Ethiopia, Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, Iraq and Turkey.

The South-South and Triangular Cooperation (SSTC) is ideal for fostering exchange of knowledge and experiences amongst the concerned countries, and for forging cooperation in crisis responses. The event will allow ILO to promote a more coherent approach to the promotion of decent work in crisis settings, in line with ILO’s Guiding Principles on the Access of Refugees and other Forcibly Displaced Persons to the Labour Market; ILO’s Jobs for Peace and Resilience Flagship Programme and implementation of the Recommendation 205 on Employment and Decent Work for Peace and Resilience.
