Date: 28th & 29th August, 2023
Venue: Sector 110, Noida, PO- Maharishi Nagar, District Gautam Budh Nagar, U.P.
Mode: Hybrid

The year 2020 was a defining period for countries, particularly, in South Asia. The COVID-19 pandemic caused not only a large number of deaths and displacements but also hastened the process towards digital centred business models. The rapid growth of the platform economy, MSMEs, and consumers’ preference for online shopping, etc. have created conditions that are entirely different from the conditions for which the prevailing labour laws were enacted.

Additionally, the havoc caused by turbulence, both natural (such as flood and drought) and manmade (such as political, trade and religious) have collectively caused humanitarian crises. These developments are having a detrimental effect on the workers, their employability, and rights at work. In this background, it is imperative for the national governments in the sub-region to understand the ongoing trends in the world of work, examine working of the social dialogue institutions, and amend the existing labour / employment laws so that the same are in tune with the ongoing changes. No doubt, many of the countries in the Sub-region have already taken measures with a view to overcome the crisis.
