About ILO

The only tripartite U.N. agency, since 1919 the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men.

The main aims of the ILO are to promote rights at work, encourage decent employment opportunities, enhance social protection and strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.

Four strategic objectives at the heart of the Decent Work agenda

  1. Set and promote standards and fundamental principles and rights at work 
  2. Create greater opportunities for women and men to decent employment and income 
  3. Enhance the coverage and effectiveness of social protection for all 
  4. Strengthen tripartism and social dialogue
