Wordle: Research

High quality, innovative and outcome--oriented research underpins our work. In a contested field like labour rights, we provide clients with an authoritative view based on an objective and comprehensive assessment of credible information.

We apply a variety of research methodologies including participative and action-oriented approaches at field level. We always seek to present outputs in the most user-friendly format that enables findings to be assimilated and acted upon.

Our assignments range from large-scale studies of global and regional trends within the decent work arena to workplace-level research on working conditions and standards.
