The Government of Sweden will convene a high-level workshop on strategies to promote the Global Deal -- a framework for inclusive growth built on advancing tripartite collaboration between workers, companies and governments across the globe. The workshop will host participants from civil society, business, and think tanks around the world, including Sabina Dewan, Executive Director of the JustJobs Network.

The aim of the workshop is to clarify how the Global Deal initiative relates to failures and opportunities in the labour market as well as to the global development agenda. It will seek to develop specific strategies around implementing the Global Deal vision, identifying the most promising tools for concrete action on the ground.

Ms. Dewan will join prominent academics, government officials and private sector leaders in a working group on fundamental rights and legislation. The working group will focus on brainstorming solutions to a critical problem: a basic platform of declarations, treaties, conventions and legislation is the underpinning for successful tripartite collaboration; in large parts of the world, however, such a platform does not exist.
