Short description of the project

The project is based on modern understanding of the right to work, according to which a provision a job for a person is not as important as the realization of this right on the basis of security, non-discrimination, dignity etc. Currently, the right to work is realized in Ukraine, while the concept of decent work is poorly implemented. The project aims to analyze the problems faced by individuals in exercising their right to work, and preventing them from realization of their right to decent work. Recommendations for improvement of legislation and practice of doing business in this area will be developed. Trainings and micro-courses will be organized, grant applications will be submitted.
