ILO FORLAC Notes on Formalization in Latin America and the Caribbean

  

   

  

         

Formalization strategies require a favourable economic context, as well as articulated policies that allow us to address a multidimensional and highly heterogeneous phenomenon.

In 2013, the ILO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean launched the Programme for the Promotion of Formalization in Latin America and the Caribbean, FORLAC.

The programme has three components:

a) generation and dissemination of knowledge on formalization policies

b) technical assistance to specific countries

c) capacity-building of workers’ and employers’ organizations in formalization issues.

The ILO FORLAC Notes suggested below are part of the first component. They analyze public policy experiences trying to identify the most remarkable ones according to the academic or political discussion.
