The relevance of social dialogue in development - New TUDCN/CPDE studies

In the framework of its work-stream on the relevance of social dialogue for development, the TUDCN has undertaken three national case studies in Ghana, Indonesia and Uruguay.

Social dialogue within the countries is analysed in its various forms, with particular focus on the formalisation of these dialogues at different administrative levels and its contribution to development. The studies are authored by national trade union specialists and include examples of good practice as well as of limitations of the different contexts. Conclusions and recommendations based on the analysis are also outlined. The studies are funded by the CSO Partnership for Development Effectiveness.

The full publication, which includes all three studies as well as executive summaries of each of them, is available for download: Social Dialogue for Sustainable Development in Uruguay, Ghana and Indonesia
