International Labour Organisation (ILO)

Established in 1919. The International Labour Organization (ILO) became the first specialized agency of the UN in 1946. ILO is the tripartite UN agency that brings together governments, employers and workers of its member states in common action to promote decent work throughout the world. ILO is devoted to advancing opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. Its main aims are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue in handling work-related issues. The ILO official website features what ILO does, statistics and databases, international labor standards, departments and offices.
