Final Report: Review of Decent Work and Tripartite Dialogue

Jan 01, 2016
  • Description

The Decent Work and Tripartite Dialogue programme (DWTD) is one of the 32 programme areas supported under the EEA and Norway Grants 2009-2014. The programme supports a broad range of activities aimed at enhancing Social and Tripartite Dialogue and promoting Decent Work in all of the 13 countries which are financed by the Norway Grants.

The Review examined the relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of the programme, as well as bilateral relations between Norway and the 13 beneficiary countries. In addition the potential policy influence was analysed. The consultants undertook a comprehensive review of relevant literature before interviewing the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (NMFA) in Oslo and the Financial Mechanism (FMO) in Brussels. Interviews with the principal Norwegian partner organisations were held in Oslo. Fieldwork was carried out in the form of detailed interviewing of project promoters in Bulgaria, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. The National Focal Points in each country were also interviewed. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) was also consulted. The consultants undertook a comprehensive online survey of all 52 project promoters with a response rate of 82%. A Workshop on the Programme´s Results Framework was held in Oslo on 14 September 2015, providing inputs into the proposed design of a potential phase II.
