This report containing IES research presents the findings of a synthesis review of interventions related to social dialogue, conducted by the International Labour Office. The research was conducted by a team at Ecorys with the support of Kari Hadjivassiliou at IES.

Social dialogue is the involvement of workers, employers and the government in the decision-making process of employment and workplace issues. This encompasses many aspects of industrial relations including negotiation, consultation or, more simply, exchange of information between employers, governments and workers on issues relating to economic and social policy.
