Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead

Manager of wages and incomes policy at International Labour Organisation

Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead obtained his PhD in labour economics (on the effects of workers’ financial participation) at the European University Institute in Florence (Italy). In the mid-eighties he worked as adviser to the European Commission’s President Jacques Delors, mainly on Social Europe, before joining the ILO in 1991. From the ILO regional team based in Budapest between 1993 and 1999, he worked on 18 Central and Eastern Europe countries since the beginning of the transition. In this capacity, he advised governments, trade unions and employers’ organizations in their reform processes, mainly in the areas of wages and incomes policy and industrial relations in general. He then applied this experience (1999-2003) to the service of the European Commission (DG Employment and Social Affairs), where he was responsible for social dialogue in the EU enlargement process and thus acted as a negotiator on social issues with the EU applicant countries. He returned to the ILO in 2004, where he is today responsible for wages and working conditions around the world. In 2008, he initiated the series 'ILO Global Wage Reports', which has become established as a worldwide reference in this area. He is currently coordinating a large European project on the impact of the inequalities crisis in the World of Work.

A French-American economist, Daniel Vaughan-Whitehead has been managing many international projects on social issues, and he is the author of many books and articles on wages, industrial relations, social dumping, forms of workers’ participation and social policies in general.
