Rudi Delarue, Director of the ILO Office for the European Union and the Benelux Countries answers 3 questions about the ILO and its work in Brussels.
ABOUT ILO: The International Labour Organization (ILO) is the tripartite UN agency that brings together governments, employers and workers of its 183 member states in common action to promote decent work throughout the world. Decent work is captured in four strategic objectives:
-fundamental principles and rights at work and international labour standards
-employment, sustainable enterprises and income opportunities
-social dialogue and tripartite consultations
Gender equality and non discrimination in employment are mainstreamed in these four pillars. These objectives hold for all activities in both formal and informal economies; in wage employment or working on their own account; in the fields, factories and offices; in homework or in the community.
The ILO works equally closely with international organizations (with a mandate in the field of commerce, finance, economy, human rights and development) as with regional organizations (such as the EU) to promote an integrated and coherent approach to decent work and fair globalisation. In addition the ILO contributes to the G8 and G20 meetings.
