GENEVA (ILO News) – 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 Thursday 27 May 2021. 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-centred recovery strategy.

The report and all associated materials will be under STRICT EMBARGO until Thursday 27 May 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 Thursday 27 May from 11:00 to 12:00 Geneva time (9:00 to 10:00 GMT).

Login details for the virtual press briefing will be sent to UNOG-accredited correspondents in advance.

Audio of the briefing will be made available to the UNOG press corps and registered journalists after the press conference.

Embargoed copies of the WESO Trends, the press release and other materials can be made available to recognized media on request.
