Eritrea – Newsletter n. 1 “Dialogue, training, bargaining: work as an instrument of peace”

Progetto Sud is pleased to share the first Newsletter regarding the project “Dialogue, training, bargaining: work as an instrument of peace” in Eritrea, funded by the Italian Agency for Development Cooperation (AICS) – Regional Office in Khartoum and leaded by Nexus International Solidarity Emilia Romagna (Nexus ER), in collaboration with Progetto Sud (ProSud), Trade Union Institute for Development Cooperation (ISCOS), International Volunteering for Development (VIS), and, at local level, National Confederation of Eritrean Workers (NCEW).

The project – which will last two years (2019-2021) – started last October and it will be carried out in the cities of Asmara and Massawa, aiming at promoting        insertion/reinsertion of the most vulnerable in the population and at further raising awareness of important issues, namely workers’ rights, inclusive and decent work, social dialogue.

The missions and research activities carried out between December 2019 and January 2020 have enabled to collect data which are fundamental to define more clearly the characteristics of the Eritrean labor market as well as its strengths/weaknesses in key sectors such as tourism/hospitality; ICT (Information and Communications Technology) and air conditioning/refrigeration.
