  2. Public Policy and Trade Disputes in the Public Service - Need for policy Coherence

    09 October 2007

    The policy framework for the employment relationship and hence for dispute resolution is, in all the countries, derived from specific labour codes that outline organizational rights and obligations of employers and workers, generally in both the private and public sectors.7 In this context the thrust of public policy has been towards a common approach to the management of trade disputes, particularly in the private sector. The policy approach in the public service is fundamentally different in several countries, because in addition to the general labour code in each country, the nature and scope of the employment relationship are elaborated in legislation specifically made for the public service.

  1. Baseline Study : Forced Labour and Human Trafficking in Kwara, Kano, Cross River and Lagos States in Nigeria

    18 July 2006

    The baseline study in the four states was part of a larger research project initiated by the Special Action Programme to Combat Forced Labour and Trafficking (SAP-FL) of ILO¬DECLARATION.

The data generated included the level or prevalence of forced labour and human trafficking in the four pilot states, their root causes and the cultural perceptions and attitudes of the rural and urban community members toward migration-motivated forced labour and human trafficking. Through the data analysis, an understanding of the nature, mechanisms and trends in human trafficking and forced labour was developed. In addition, the study sought to examine, analyse and explain how existing law and policies regulating migration and trafficking influence the movement of employment¬motivated migrants.
