Regulatory impact assessment of ILO C156 - workers with family responsibilities convention
The Caucasus Research Resource Center (CRRC)-Armenia Foundation and Human Rights Research Center (HRRC) NGO, in collaboration with UN Women, has implemented a Regulatory Impact Assessment (RIA) to study the prospects and organize a policy dialogue towards the possible ratification of the ILO Workers with Family Responsibilities Convention, 1981 (No. 156) by the Republic of Armenia.
The aim of the RIA exercise was to promote productive employment and decent work for all men and women with family responsibilities by providing them with equal opportunities and equal treatment by means of the creation of an enabling environment, awareness-raising and changes to discriminatory social norms. The study attempts to answer the following questions: what are the problems to be addressed following the ratification of the Convention? What are the specific policy objectives to be achieved through the identified interventions? What are the different ways of achieving the objectives and the cost (such as the budgetary, administrative, economic and social implications of various modalities of the problem’s solution) of those achievements?
The publication was prepared in the framework of the project “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus”, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC).
