This project compiles the results of inter- and transdisciplinary research carried out in the framework of various r4d employment projects. With the objectives of discussing labour market issues in developing countries from a multilevel gender perspective and equipping policymakers with relevant tools for the formulation and implementation of decent work policies, the project team is developing a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to enable and foster knowledge exchange between the various stakeholders involved. By drawing on multiple written, audio-visual and interactive resources, the MOOC aims to encourage dialogue between researchers from different disciplinary fields and policymakers from around the world.
