On 4th May 2022, the EESC will hold a remote public hearing on Decent work worldwide, in the context of the ongoing opinion on the topic. Millions of workers around the world suffer from violations of their labour rights and from poor working conditions. Still today, 160 million children – one in ten worldwide – are in child labour, and 25 million people are in a situation of forced labour. The COVID-19 crisis is deteriorating the working and living situation of workers worldwide, in particular of those most vulnerable. The European Commission's Communication on Decent work worldwide, adopted in February 2022, sets out the internal and external policies the EU uses to implement decent work worldwide, putting this objective at the heart of an inclusive, sustainable and resilient recovery from the pandemic. The hearing will represent a key contribution to the ongoing EESC opinion on "Decent work worldwide".
