Social justice for a fair globalization
The ILO has just published “Rules of the Game: a brief introduction to International Labour Standards (Revised edition 2014)”.
This booklet was first published in 2005 to help better understand the essence of ILO conventions, recommendations and protocols. This revised version, available in English, French and Spanish, is aimed at a non-specialist audience and the general public, discussing their importance in today’s global economy, the subjects they cover, how they are applied and supervised, and where further information can be sought.
The revised edition integrates recently adopted instruments, including the 2010 HIV and AIDS Recommendation, the 2011 Domestic Workers Convention, the 2012 Social Protection Floors Recommendation and the 2014 Protocol and Recommendation to tackle modern forms of forced labour. It also takes into account the entry into force of the 2006 Maritime Labour Convention and emphasizes the key role international labour standards can play in the context of the ongoing crisis.
The Centre offers training on international labour standards for government officials, employers, workers, lawyers, judges, legal educators, journalists and media professionals as well as specialized courses on labour standards, productivity improvement and enterprise development, international labour standards and globalization, and the rights of women workers, contributing to achieving the ILO's goal of decent work for women and men.
