EU Sources - Report on labour provisions in trade agreements - January 01, 2017

Several ILO reports, on labour provisions in trade agreements, assess the impact of these provisions on labour market outcomes. The Handbook of Labour Provisions in Trade Agreements, provides practical information on the design, implementation and stakeholder involvement of labour provisions in a user-friendly format geared towards non-technical audiences. It situates the report in the broader trade and labour debate, provides practical country case studies, and examines particular issues related to global supply chains, gender and overall labour governance. Two of the case studies are dedicated to trade agreements established by the EU. The report signals that the European Parliament Roadmap has had a significant influence on the enforcement and recognition of policies like the freedom of association and of collective bargaining.
