The course on “Promotion of Youth Employment in Fragile Settings” took place at the ITCILO campus in Turin from 2 to 6 October 2017.
This training provided participants with a range of notions, methods and tools for the promotion of youth employment in fragile settings. By attending the course, participants have:
- Gained a better understanding of labour market challenges in countries affected by conflicts and disasters
- Learned about the ILO’s response including the recently endorsed Recommendation No. 205 on “Employment and decent work for peace and resilience” and the Flagship Programme on “Jobs for peace and resilience”
- Enhanced their capacity to design, implement and evaluate effective strategies and programmes to promote employment and decent work for youth in fragile and disaster situations, by being exposed to concrete field experiences and real life examples
- Gained access to proven tools and methodologies for the Promotion of Youth Employment in Fragile Settings
The training Promotion of Youth Employment in Fragile Settings built on ILO’s experience in the promotion and implementation of youth employment strategies and programmes in disaster and conflict affected situations. The course is structured in three parts. Initially, participants reviewed the ILO’s framework to promote employment and decent work for peace and resilience. The second part focused on practical experiences for the promotion of youth employment in situations of disaster and conflict. Finally, participants envisioned how to apply what learnt in their specific contexts.
The course focused greatly on the sharing of experiences, existing knowledge, and best practices among participants and resource persons. To this end, a series of cases have been analysed and will be published by the ITCILO on this website, in the “Case Studies” section, in the coming weeks.
A new edition of this course is scheduled for the first week of October 2018. For more info, check out the ITCILO online calendar.
