Le dialogue social en Côte d'Ivoire

Abstract : Encouraged and promoted by the ILO, social dialogue in the Côte d’Ivoire benefits from an important institutional network and many players. It is an instrument of governance in the sense that it simultaneously mobilizes the State, workers and the employers. Its function is to promote the social peace that is so indispensable to the economic development. In the Côte d’Ivoire, social dialogue has developed very progressively in the public sector and is consolidating in the private sector. Its recourse during times of crisis has allowed taking into account the interests of the workers while ensuring that the companies’ competitiveness remains preserved. Even though its benefits are well known and regularly put forward by the players, social dialogue remains insufficiently exploited and oftentimes instrumentalised. Public authorities use it to seduce and reassure institutional partners that provide economic development in the Côte d’Ivoire. Beyond the insufficient juridical frame (lack of formal affirmation of the right to collective bargaining), the workers’ organizations, which are major social dialogue players, remain weak and dependent on politics. All these weaknesses prevent social dialogue in the Côte d’Ivoire from really making progress.
