Manila – The Institute for Labor Studies (ILS) is set to hold its very first online DOLE Research Conference for 2020 via the Zoom online platform from March 23-25.

As a culminating policy advocacy activity anchored on this year’s theme of Revive and Thrive: Actions for Creating a Decent Future of Work Amid and Beyond COVID-19, this presentation provides a venue for the Institute’s researchers to present findings of researches conducted during this time of pandemic and elicit discussion and exchange of ideas on labor policy issues between and among various offices and agencies of the Department of Labor and Employment.

For this year’s 9th DOLE Research Conference, the Institute strives to take the public discourse on post-pandemic recovery to new frontiers through groundbreaking and pragmatic research outputs which will serve as the groundwork for the crafting of evidence based policies and guided decision-making.

The research papers were made in the midst of the nationwide-lockdown and the outputs have been grouped based on the themes, which mirror the 2020 ILS Revive and Thrive COVID-19 Series, which shall be as follows: Theme 1: Empowering workers and employers with innovative tools; Theme 2: Advancing workers’ rights and welfare through human-centered systems and institutions; and Theme 3: Ensuring safe, democratic and sustainable workplace towards a decent future.
