(...) Establishing an effective regulatory framework to support decent jobs, harmonize national labour laws and regulations with international labour standards and monitor and enforce compliance with national labour laws to ensure decent jobs are key steps to overcome inequality. (...) A number of these statistical workstreams on migration under way could support the knowledge base for the global compact.
