The Centenary Publication
100 years of ILO history. An academic book for the larger public.
The major output for the ILO’s Centenary will be an academic publication on the history of the ILO. Written by a renowned historian, Professor Daniel Maul (University of Oslo), the book will go well beyond the traditional institutional narrative and draw from the latest research.
Meeting at the University of Oslo, March 2017:
Tor Egil Førland, Head of the Department of Archeology, Conservation and History, Kari Tapiola (ILO), Dorothea Hoehtker (ILO), Professor Daniel Maul and Erland Haavardsholm, Research officer (from left to right).
Forthcoming: Women’s ILO. Transnational Networks, Global Labour Standards and Gender Equity, 1919 to Present.
The question of women workers has been on ILO’s agenda since 1919. This volume gathers newest scholarly research on the complex history of ILO’s activities for women workers.
It does this by focussing on two major issues: On one hand the role of women’s organizations and networks in shaping ILO’s policies for women workers. And on the other hand, the way labour standards affecting women have been negotiated, applied and used by policy makers in various local constellations throughout history.
