Agency for Development: A Case Study of the ILO's Decent Work Agenda

Kristoffer Kjærsgaard

Studenteropgave: Fagmodulprojekt


This paper seeks to analyse if the ILO can be considered as an agency for development through its decent work agenda. Through a thematic approach this paper analyses, discusses and compares documents of five different actors to find causality of homogenisation and answer if the ILO is an agency for development. The empirical material in this study is five documents and it is through these five documents that the thematic analysis takes its point of departure to find themes of isomorphism and themes of agency. On the basis of isomorphism and agency, this paper has found causality which explains that the ILO in five development documents had influence through its decent work agenda. Therefore, on the basis of other actors applying the decent work agenda as a tool for development, it is possible to identify the ILO as an agency for development.
