The European Commission is organising a major high policy event on "Decent work for all - mobilising the EU and its partners.
The conference is a follow-up to the May 2006 Commission Communication on decent work and will help prepare a new report planned in September 2008.
The conference will cover the different dimensions of internal and external EU policies that are relevant for promoting decent work for all in the world and aims to:
- Better mobilise EU policies to promote decent work
- Take stock of efforts made at EU and national level so far to promote decent work
- Contribute to the international agenda on decent work, in particular by cooperating with the International Labour Organisation and wider UN family
- Further mobilise all relevant actors to foster the social dimension of globalisation
