Decent Work & Poverty Reduction

Time: Oct 25, 2011
Location: Doha, Qatar

Offered an opportunity for multi-stakeholders to exchange experiences and policy lessons from countries including the Arab region, and help to consolidate the Decent Work approach in the national development strategies.

The Doha International Institute for Family Studies and Development (DIIFSD) organized in collaboration with the International Labor Organisation (ILO) and the International Training Center of ILO in Turin (ITC/ ILO) a forum on decent work and poverty reduction held on 25th and 26th October 2011 in Doha.
The Forum seeks to contribute to a better understanding on how a Decent Work approach can contribute to the enhancement of the broader international development agenda reflected by the Millennium Development Goals with an emphasis on the progressive elimination of poverty.

This Forum fits within the initiatives undertaken by the Institute on a regular basis to provide the region and other part of the world with academic research and knowledge as well as interdisciplinary dialogue aimed at exchange of best practices and coherent policy formulation. The forum also contributed in the preparations of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Intenational Year of The Family, 2014.
