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 equality and decent work for all women and men.
We do this by designing and implementing training and capacity development activities for ILO staff, constituents, partners and other national and international actors.
The Programme focuses its activities on the following areas:
- ILS reporting and other constitutional procedures
- ILS for judges, lawyers and legal educators
- ILS for media
- Socially responsible enterprises
- Non-standard forms of employment
- Maritime labour standards
- Child labour
- Equality in employment and occupation
- Forced labour and human trafficking
- Freedom of association and collective bargaining
