The Global Deal is a Swedish initiative that addresses challenges in the world’s labour market and aims to extend the benefits of globalization to all people. It is an international, multistakeholder partnership that engages governments, labour organizations, businesses and other groups to enhance the dialogue on issues of social and economic policy. Greater equality and increased growth can be achieved through mutual respect, trust and collaboration between employers, workers and governments.
