Good Practices in Social Security Good Practices in Social Security

The identification and sharing of good practices helps social security organizations and institutions to improve their operational and administrative efficiency.

In the context of the ISSA, a good practice is defined as any type of experience (e.g. an action, a measure, a process, a programme, a project, or a technology) implemented within a social security organization that fosters the improvement of its administrative and operational capacities, and/or the efficient and effective delivery of programmes. The good practices selected by the ISSA focus on topics related to the priorities as defined in the programme and budget of the Association. The good practices are from member institutions of the ISSA and are primarily collected through the work of the  ISSA Technical Commissions and the ISSA Good Practice Awards.

Success of the self-employment programme in Azerbaijan - A case of the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Population of the Republic of Azerbaijan

The implementation of the large-scale self-employment program in Azerbaijan covering all regions of the country was started in 2016. The self-employment program created a qualitatively new stage in state employment policy by creating opportunities for the unemployed to establish family business, to have their own farms, to increase income through self-employment, and finally, to create new jobs in the country and to develop small and medium-size businesses which are crucial for the economy.

8,548 people have been involved in the program during 2016–2018, with the prevalent participation of those most needing social protection.

The program is one of those that will ensure the transition from passive labour market policies to active social protection measures. This will involve more than 8,500 people in 2019, and will expand the financing of the program provided every year by the Unemployment Insurance Fund.
