Training of Trainers Toolkit on the ILO Violence And Harassment Convention (No. 190) and Recommendation (No. 206)

published 25 June 2021 updated 15 November 2022

The historical adoption of the ILO Violence and Harassment Convention 190 (C190) and Recommendation 206 (R206) in 2019 by the International Labour Conference has created a new momentum in the fight against violence and harassment – including gender-based violence and harassment - in the world of work.

Violence and harassment in the world of work is a daily reality for millions of workers in all sectors, occupations, and work arrangements. Gender-based violence and harassment is the most widespread form of violence and harassment in the world of work, affecting women disproportionately.
