Pathways to Decent Work

Conference paper | 26 October 2005
The ILO is playing a leading international role in the employment of young people,
in the framework of the United Nations Secretary-General’s Youth Employment
Network and the 2002 United Nations General Assembly resolution on “Promoting
youth employment”. It is also committed to the United Nations Millennium
Development Goals, in particular Goal 8, which sets as a target the development and
implementation of strategies for decent and productive work for youth, in collaboration
with developing countries. These responsibilities are a reflection of the long-standing
commitment of ILO constituents and the Organization to the promotion of decent work for all young women and men.
