Division of Labour, Employment and Migration

Across Africa, unemployment and underemployment contribute to the high levels of poverty and compromise basic human rights and dignity of individuals and communities. The division of labour and employment focuses on the rights, labour standards, integrated employment policies and social security systems. It provides guidelines for Member States to draw up their own country specific frameworks, based on national needs and priorities. It supports the implementation of effective labour and employment policies and programmes aligned with the Ouagadougou Plan of Action which prioritises employment, labour, social dialogue and social protection.
