Decent Work and the Informal Economy
The ILO was founded for social justice, a mandate expressed today in terms of decent work as a global goal, for all who work, whether in formal or informal contexts. In June 2002, the delegates to the International Labour Conference from governments, workersâ€™ and employersâ€™ organizations adopted a resolution incorporating conclusions on decent work and the informal economy. The four components of decent work â€“ opportunities for employment and income, respect for rights at work, social protection and stronger social dialogue â€“ form the backbone of the ILOâ€™s approach to the informal economy. These elements can also be seen through a development lens, and necessarily feature a strong gender dimension. [Discussion Paper No. 2005/04]
