Integrating Trade and Decent Work
The ILO research programme “Integrating trade and decent work” (INTEGRATE) is a multi-donor partnership that follows a more human-centred approach, which means treating decent work as a central objective of trade policy, as called for in the ILO Centenary Declaration for the Future of Work (2019).
The ILO has launched a new global database on labour provisions in trade agreements, paving the way for a more human-centred approach to trade policy.

Two new publications created to pave the way for a more comprehensive and realistic analysis of the effects of trade on labour markets, based on a human-centred approach
