  1. Multinational enterprises, development and decent work: An annotated bibliography on the application of the Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy

    04 August 2015

    This annotated bibliography provides a succinct overview of the significant amount of research, analysis, and guidance documents on the activities of multinational enterprises (MNEs) that has been published by the ILO and others from 2005 to 2015. The publication presents a solid collection of works relevant to the ILO MNE Declaration and provides a range of information on labour and employment issues to parties interested in translating the principles of the Declaration into action. It will be of interest to ILO constituents, ILO staff members and researchers who deal with issues related to investment, MNEs and decent work. Those interested in MNEs, CSR, the role of the private sector in development and FDI more broadly, may also find this bibliography useful in their work.

  2. Corporate Social Responsibility and decent work

    31 March 2015

    Corporate Social Responsibility has the stated aim of encouraging the positive contribution of business to socio economic development and reducing the risk of possible negative impact, including along the complex systems of global supply chains, thus becoming an intrinsic part of the way business does its business. This approach recognizes that enterprises have a responsibility to ensure that jobs are decent, workplaces are safe and inclusive, proper wages are being paid and workers have a voice to come up for their rights. At the same time genuine CSR seeks to encourage the positive impact of the private sector as a major player in society creating jobs that provide incomes and learning opportunities. To fully harness the potential of the private sector, the ILO was one of the first international organizations to adopt an instrument that introduces a social dimension to the forces shaping globalization, The Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration). In the 1970s it was ahead of its time and today it is more relevant than ever to engage with business and achieve a fair globalization.
