The Policy Integration Department supports the ILO’s agenda for decent work for a fair globalization. Its central objective is to further greater policy coherence of social and economic policies at the international and national level. To this end, it works closely with other multilateral agencies and Governments, workers’ and employers’ organizations. It also reaches out to civil society organizations and the academic world. Through its policy-oriented agenda, it explores the complementarities and interdependencies between employment, working conditions, social protection, social dialogue and labour standards using research, policy advice, dialogue and technical cooperation as means of action. The Department also contributes to greater policy synergies in the work of all units of the Office on decent work.
