Product Overview

The book presents and discusses the challenges and potential of local authorities to promote decent work in construction. It combines theoretical analysis and case-studies, with recommendations to both practitioners and academics.

Existing literature on decent work focuses mainly on the roles and responsibilities of actors in the private sector but the contribution of actors and institutions in the public sector must not be ignored. Local authorities play a crucial role in economic development through a range of policies and programmes in the construction sector and related services, e.g. utilities.

This book includes a methodology that combines quantitative and qualitative information and data. It defines and validates a set of criteria to evaluate the capacity of local authorities, combining criteria about decent work, the construction sector (and related services), and the policies and programmes of the local authority in each case study city.
