The fallout of the global financial and economic crisis, on the heels of a rapid rise in food and fuel prices, slowed down global progress in poverty eradication and led to a severe jobs crisis. In June 2011, the Division for Social Policy and Development of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations (UN/DESA), in collaboration with the International Labour Organization (ILO), organized two Expert Group Meetings, on “Poverty Eradication” and “The Challenge of Building Employment for a Sustainable Recovery”, in Geneva, Switzerland. The meetings brought together specialists to undertake a review of progress in eradicating poverty and to analyse policy responses to the global jobs crisis in different countries and regions of the world. This volume includes some of the papers presented at the Experts Group Meetings.
