The International Labour Organization (ILO) announces its International Essay Competition on The Future of Work to celebrate its 100 Anniversary. Undergraduate students from Carribean Universities are welcome to apply. The world of work is undergoing a major process of change. The report of the ILO Global Commission on the Future of Work launched in January 2019 synthesizes such a process. Hence, the competition opens for an argument on what changes may come in the future, and how we can deal with it.

The essay must talk about the Future of Work and include:

  • A brief introduction to the current situation of the world of work globally and in the Caribbean in particular.
  • What, in the next 20 years, do you see as the main global trends regarding employment and the world of work?
  • What do you see as the future implications of these trends on the Caribbean with respect to its economy, its society, and social well-being, its laws, etc.? Implications can be both positive and negative.
  • Propose 1-2 concrete solutions or recommendations on how the Caribbean can best prepare for future trends, ensure the most positive impact and mitigate as much as possible, the negative ones. Further, describe as thoroughly as possible how the proposed solution/s could lead to the desired change.

What will the Winner of the International ILO Essay Competition receive?

The winner of the competition will receive a full scholarship inclusive of tuition and subsistence allowance. Further, they will receive travel funds to attend the summer academy on “The Future of Work”, 12–23 August 2019 At The International Training Center of the ILO (ITC-ILO), Turin, Italy.
