INEK PEO was created in 2002. It is, an independent and autonomous research, documentation and training centre, operating on a professional and scientific basis. The research agenda of the Institute reflects the special relationship of the Institute with the union movement. Hence, the concern is on labour issues in the wider sense and matters of special interest to the union movement.
The research activity also addresses issues of broader economic and social concern that exceed the boundaries of standard union action. Every December, INEK-PEO publishes the Annual Economy and Employment Report, this is a comprehensive study of Cyprus’ economic and labour market performance.
Additionally, an important part of INEK-PEO’s activities concerns the development and the implementation of various educational and occupational training programmes.
