References to the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work

Document | 27 May 2008

Since its adoption in June 1998, the Declaration has been widely cited by world leaders, international and regional organizations, policy makers, ILO constituents and the press. The values in the Declaration represent a global consensus on social and labour issues, and serve as the major reference point in this sphere.

The Annual Reviews, Global Reports, and technical cooperation programmes will continue to generate information on and attention to efforts being made to ensure universal respect for Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
