    14 November 2011

    Last month, Juan Somavia, the long serving Director-General of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) announced his departure in 2012. As head of the ILO, he introduced the Decent Work Agenda in 1999 to re-focus the ILO and make it relevant for the 21st century. Twelve years later, the concept of ‘Decent Work’ is firmly established in the global debate and as an objective of national policy.

    09 June 2011

    Migration and mobility are not factors for HIV transmission, however, the migration process itself, as well as precarious working and living conditions that migrant workers often experience while separated from their families, may expose them to associated risks.
