Creating employment is a priority for many governments’, as a result there has been calls to develop comprehensive strategies for young people who are not in employment, education or training. With poverty regularly cited as one of the most robust correlates of instability, it seems somewhat obvious that such programs could potentially increase stability even if that is not their primary aim. Despite the possibility of such spillovers, however, these impacts are seldom measured, with success based on a program’s economic impact. With a few notable exceptions, these potential spillovers and interactions are insufficiently modeled or understood, especially in conflict-affected and fragile settings. The research project entitled Employment for Stability was carried out to fill this knowledge gap by using employment intervention and stability data to identify these effects and interrelations.
By providing new information on the relationship between economic opportunity and stability in the context of employment interventions through a meta-analysis of pro-employment aid programs matched with stability data and the identification of lessons learnt, the study is intended to contribute to more effective policy interventions for longer-term stability, particularly in fragile countries.
It is against this context Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, The United Nations University - Maastricht Economic and Social Research Institute on Innovation and Technology, the Hague Institute for Global Justice, INES-Ruhengeri and Pan African Chamber of Commerce and Industry are organizing the International Workshop on Employment for Stability from July 5-6, 2017 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Goals and Objectives of the Workshop
The Conference seeks to
- Facilitate inter-sectoral dialogue and sharing of experiences to understand the extent employment programs help bring stability.
- Stock-taking of the main results of the study including the lessons learnt and eventual strategies, policies, and actions.
- Explore potential roles for strategic engagement (nationally, regionally and internationally) with the aim of realizing appropriate and effective strategies to improve both development and stability.
