Trade, employment, and labour standards : a study of core workers' rights and international trade by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
10 editions published in 1996 in English and French and held by 318 libraries worldwide
Recent years have witnessed growing concern over the controversial issue of trade and labour standards. In a context of intensified international competition, alleged cases of child labour exploitation or of denial of rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining in some developing countries have been perceived by some in developed countries not only as a violation of human rights but also as unfair trade practices. On the other hand, developing countries generally respond that these concerns are unfounded and reflect disguised protectionist preoccupations. What are the relevant core labour standards in this discussion? Do countries with low levels of core labour standards gain an unfair trade advantage over countries with high standards? What are the advantages and disadvantages of possible mechanisms to promote core labour standards? This study provides the first comprehensive analysis of these questions and reviews evidence for a large number of countries throughout the world

Lessons from the economic transition : Central and Eastern Europe in the 1990s ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 291 libraries worldwide
Lessons from the Economic Transition presents a coherent analysis of the main shortcomings and pitfalls in transition policies applied thus far and attempts to point the way forward to push the transition through to a successful conclusion. The book highlights the complex interrelation between the requirements of the economics of transition and the social and political constraints faced by Central and Eastern European countries (CEECs). The central questions of this book are: what have we learned from CEECs' economic transition to a market-based system? and are there lessons to provide guidance to these countries to improve their policies in the future? The book has four major parts selected for their critical importance in explaining the results achieved to date and in assisting policy-makers in achieving a successful transformation of these economies in the future. These four themes include the overall framework of the transition strategy, the restructuring and development of the enterprise sector, the unemployment problem and social issues, and the integration of CEECs into the world economy. The book presents a set of policy-oriented conclusions at the end of each part, providing the reader with both thoughtful economic analyses and insightful policy conclusions

The future of female-dominated occupations by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
9 editions published in 1998 in English and French and held by 282 libraries worldwide
In all of the OECD countries, employment is seen to be sharply segregated by gender, with women's employment heavily concentrated in the same occupations: secretaries, primary school teachers, nurses and home helpers. These jobs, whose image has in many cases remained stereotyped and traditional, are at the heart of the information and service economy and have therefore been undergoing far-reaching changes due to information technologies, the development of a knowledge-based economy and population ageing. These transformations represent a major challenge for women's employment and for gender equality in the labour market. Beyond the high segregation and concentration scales which are a constant of women's employment in all countries, international comparisons show that there can be differences in the status of a given occupation from one country to another. These differences can stem from the way in which occupations are defined or from how the relevant activities and work are organised. Understanding these differences is essential to identify ways to promote women's career prospects in female-dominated occupations

Where are the resources for lifelong learning? by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 207 libraries worldwide
There is broad political support for lifelong learning because it is so vital to sustained economic progress and social cohesion in the "new economy". But its implementation is potentially costly and depends on making the learning process more cost-effective and on securing financial and in-kind resources from the private sector. What can be done to keep lifelong learning from becoming prohibitively expensive, and to ensure that there are strong and transparent incentives to invest in it ? This book looks at recent experience of selected OECD countries as they have articulated their goals and strategies for lifelong learning. It examines policies and practices that influence the rates of return to lifelong learning, and mechanisms that are being put in place to channel financial resources to lifelong learning. It identifies resource issues that need to be addressed if lifelong learning is to be an affordable and workable guide to public policy
Coherence of agricultural and rural development policies by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 105 libraries worldwide
Agriculture is no longer the dominant sector in rural economies in OECD countries. But it is still the key sector in managing the land, and many ancillary industries are dependant on agriculture. Both agricultural and rural policy are changing to respond to society's concerns regarding food safety, food security, animal welfare, environmental protection and the viability of rural areas. These proceedings of the OECD Workshop on Coherence of Agricultural and Rural Development Policies examined these issues through thematic studies and country experiences. They find that rural is not synonymous with agriculture and agriculture is not always rural as much agricultural production occurs in peri-urban areas. The goals of agricultural and rural policies are different, but policy coherence is essential
