This database contains selected judicial decisions in which domestic and international courts have relied on international labour standards and other international legal instruments to resolve the cases brought before them. The cases included in the database concern not only disputes arising from the world of work but also decisions on human rights outside the sphere of the world of work but still relevant to it. Some of these judgements were made by former participants in the ITC-ILO courses on “International Labour Standards for Judges, Lawyers and Legal Educators”.
The decisions are presented in the form of summaries underlining how international law was used in each specific case. The translations of the extracts of the decisions included in the summaries are unofficial. However, at the end of each summary the full text of the decision is available in the original language.
