100 years of ILO history
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.
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.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.
