The World of Work in Developing Countries

We divided the study into two documents: volume 1 and volume 2, as stand-alone publications.

Volume 1: A National Security Priority for the United States

Elevates the issue as one of strategic interest to the United States and proposes a more focused approach on job creation and workforce preparation abroad via U.S. bilateral development agencies and multilateral fora.


Volume 2: Developing Country Trends and Insights from Four Country Case Studies

Presents a summary of the future of work discussion in developing countries and provides insights from the four country case studies.
