In this page, you will find a collection of case studies relating to the issue of job creation and of the promotion of decent work in contexts of fragility.

According to the definition provided by the Compass Cards developed by the ITCILO, “Case studies examine specific issues by analyzing a contextual scenario. They can be used to holistically introduce key concepts or learning topics, analyze circumstances, diagnose problems and propose solutions. They are a way of concretely presenting theory that might otherwise remain abstract. Case studies encourage the development of individual ideas and the understanding of diverse perspectives through participatory discussion and collaborative analysis.” Case studies can be a useful learning tool to understand best practices and identify errors.

Some of the cases were developed specifically by the International Training Centre of the ILO, normally for training purposes: you will find them under the blue markers. Others were researched and published by the ILO: they are inserted in the map with the green marker. Orange markers identify cases we have received from our other partners, or collected through desk research.

Were you, or your organization, involved in the study of a case that is particularly significant to job creation in fragile states? Please contact us at fragilestates@itcilo.org and share your cases with us.
