UN Specialized Agencies: The Case of the International Labour Organization
The course will provide an overview of the history and work of the first specialized UN agency, the International Labour Organization. This session will focus on ILO’s mandate and its tripartite structure, its normative, policy and operational work, the global challenges in the field of employment and decent work and the relevance of labour and employment issues to the global development agenda. The lecture will be completed by a group exercise on the relevance of employment and work issues for the attainment of international development goals. In addition, a role play will take place where students will simulate the negotiation in an international tripartite set-up of a new international convention on the elimination of the worst forms of child labour.
