Alternative Methods of Advancing International Labor Rights

Thursday, February 18, 2010
02:00 PM - 05:00 PM
Room 603



The International Labor Organization's 1998 Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, enumerates four core labor rights that all 183 members are bound to respect, promote and realize by virtue of their ILO membership. While the ILO is accused of being 'toothless' as the Declaration's supervisory body, states, NGOs, Labor Unions and Employers nevertheless adopt an impressive array of tools to advance observance of core worker rights. This symposium will highlight some of the most notable methods currently being created and implemented around the world.

Presented by the LLM Board, International Legal Studies Program
