The ILO Centenary Declaration

The ILO Centenary Declaration


At a time of transformative
change in the world of work of persistent inequalities
affecting the future of work a new Declaration will guide the ILO as it faces its second century. The Centenary Declaration
for the Future of Work calls on the ILO to carry forward
with unrelenting vigor its mandate for social justice. Adopted by the International
Labour Conference in June 2019, the Declaration sets out a roadmap for a reinvigorated organization. It calls for a human centered approach where people are at the heart of economic, social and environmental policies. It provides guidance for the
ILO’s priorities and programme, and it is a call to action for member states to work together to meet the challenges of
a changing world of work. Based on over a hundred
national discussions, informed by the Global Commission’s
report on the Future of Work, embraced by employers, workers,
and governments alike, the Declaration reflects the
aspirations of a global community for a human-centered approach
to the world of work that invests in people’s capabilities, in the institutions of work, and in decent, sustainable work for all. For an ILO with strengthened
capacity for Tripartism, robust Labour Standards
and the knowledge base to harness, enable and effect change that sustains and protects all workers. For member states to work
individually and collectively with the support of the ILO, to further a human-centered approach. The Centenary Declaration
for the Future of Work… a declaration for a world
where social justice for all is within our reach.
