The International Labour Organization, ILO, will publish a new edition of its World Employment and Social Outlook: Trends 2021 (WESO Trends), which looks at the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global labour market and the prospects for recovery.
The WESO Trends and accompanying press release will be published on Wednesday 2 June. It covers the extent and consequences of the labour market disruption caused by the crisis, including the effects on inequality, working poverty and youth employment. It also outlines principles for a comprehensive and human-centered recovery strategy.
The report and all associated materials will be under STRICT EMBARGO until Wednesday 2 June at 11:00 GMT (13:00 CEST).
ILO Director-General, Guy Ryder, and Richard Samans, Director, ILO Research Department, will present the findings at an embargoed virtual press briefing on Wednesday 2 June from 11:00 to 12:00 Geneva time (9:00 to 10:00 GMT).
