Worker, employer and government delegates from the ILO’s 187 Member States will tackle a wide range of issues that have a long-term impact on the world of work, including:
- A second standard-setting discussion on quality apprenticeships.
- A recurrent discussion on the strategic objective of social protection (labour protection).
- A general discussion on a just transition, including consideration of industrial policies and technology, towards environmentally sustainable economies and societies for all.
- A proposed Convention and Recommendation concerning the partial revision of 15 international labour instruments, following the inclusion of a safe and healthy working environment in the ILO’s framework of fundamental principles and rights at work.
A World of Work Summit will take place on the 14 and 15 June. Convened this year around the central theme of “Social Justice for All”, it will be a high-level forum for global voices to address the need for increased, coordinated and coherent action in support of social justice. It will provide an opportunity to discuss the Global Coalition for Social Justice initiative, which was welcomed by the Governing Body of the International Labour Office at its 347th Session in March 2023.
The Summit will feature a programme of addresses and panel discussions that will bring together Heads of State and Government, the ILO Director-General, and high-level representatives from the United Nations, other international organizations, and employers’ and workers’ organizations.
Details of the ILC agenda are available on the ILO website. The programmes of work of the technical committees will be finalised nearer to the Conference dates and will be available on the dedicated webpages of the technical committees.
Access to the Conference Committee on the Application of Standards is not possible without being accompanied by a Department of Communication staff member.
