International labour standards

International labour standards
© ILO

International labour standards are legal instruments that establish basic minimum social standards agreed upon by governments, employers and workers.

Our mission is to support the development of knowledge and skills to promote international labour standards (ILS) and rights at work, to strengthen their application and to advance the achievement of decent work for all women and men.

We do this by designing and implementing training and capacity development activities for constituents, ILO staff, partners and other national and international actors.
