EU and GOPA: Promotion of social dialogue

InfoPro conducted a study for GOPA consultants under the ‘Promotion of Social Dialogue in Lebanon’ project which is a part of the EU funded program ‘Promotion of Social Justice’. The program is currently implemented by the Ministry of Labor (MOL) with its main partners being the Labor Inspection Department of the MOL, the National Employment Office (NEO), and the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The main purpose of the project is the enhancement of the capabilities of the Government of Lebanon, and specifically the technical capacities of the MOL, and Lebanese Social Partners and Civil Society to be promoters of social dialogue. Two sectors with high potential for growth and unmet demand with regards to a qualified workforce were therefore selected. InfoPro’s mandate was to conduct in-depth interviews with 290 firms belonging to those two sectors.
