ILO Office for Turkey publishes “Workshop on Employment and Equity”

EQUITY PHOTOFollowing a “Workshop on Employment and Equity” held at Ankara University Faculty of Political Sciences on June 17-21, 2015, the ILO Office for Turkey has published the collection of the texts of the workshop and the academic debate.

The publication is a culmination of the constructive, critical and forward-looking debates of the “Workshop on Employment and Equity” among international and national academicians as well as the representatives of the constituents discussing and suggesting policy recommendations addressing wages and inequalities.

The resulting publication edited by Berrin Ceylan-Ataman and Risa L. Lieberwitz “Employment and Equity” aims to establish a basis for long-term cooperation among scholars of social policy & industrial relations and policy-making institutions. It is also expected that the publication will be instrumental for the constituents and policy makers in designing policies and programmes that combine increased economic growth with decreased income inequality and advances social justice for all.

The publication consists of 12 chapters featuring the following themes: Assessment of the Situation: Industrial Relations and Social Policy in the Making of a Global Economy, Challenges for Social Protection: Changing Axes of Welfare Policies in the Making of a Global Polity, Dynamics of Social Inclusion: A Discussion of the Role of Actors (governments, social partners and civil societies) in the Making of a Global Society, Economic and Social Inequality: Growth and Social Welfare, Labor Law and Social Policy: Collaboration and Effective Relationships of Social Partners.
