Full employment is one of the most important objectives of a well-functioning macro economy in a country. The current global economic crisis has resulted in high unemployment rate which, if not well dealt with, would affect the social stability and economic development. The Asia-Pacific Finance and Development Center (AFDC) in collaboration with the World Bank, KDI School of Public Policy and Management, and the Tokyo Development Learning Center will launch a series of Distance Learning Seminars in 2013 to share experience and exchange ideas on policy framework of job creation. The first session will take place on Thursday, May 9, 2013.
The massive earthquake that hit Eastern Japan on March 11, 2011 and the subsequent tsunami left devastation in its wake, but it also shed light on many valuable lessons that may contribute to future reconstruction efforts in and outside of Japan. This joint seminar prepared by the ILO Office in Japan and the World Bank Tokyo Development Learning Center focuses on the collaborative reconstruction efforts between international organizations and the government of Japan by sharing the outcome of the international symposium in Iwate during March 13-14, 2013 and reporting on the World Bank-GoJ “Learning from Megadisasters” project.
This session is part of a larger program. For more information see Global Labor Market and Youth Employment
While the Euro debt crisis continues to weaken the global economy, the labor market is making limited progress by remaining at a lower level than before the global economic crisis in 2008. Notwithstanding there is a serious youth employment crisis with nearly 7.5 million youth unemployed worldwide.
Youth employment issues were discussed at the World Bank / IMF Annual Meetings which recently took place in Tokyo. As part of a global employment crisis response, ILO member states also discussed youth employment issues at the 101st session of International Labour Conference in 2012, and a resolution concerning actions to be taken towards youth employment was adopted.
This seminar on global employment crisis welcomes ILO’s Mr. José Manuel Salazar-Xirinachs, Executive Director of Employment Sector and Professor Keijiro Otsuka, a core team member behind “World Development Report 2013: Jobs” as keynote speakers.
