A fair globalization. The role of the ILO. Report of the Director-General on the World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization (Report 92).

Explores how the ILO can develop a central recommendation of the World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization to make decent work a global goal. Discusses six broad policy themes: national policies to address globalization; decent work in global production systems; growth, investment and employment and the case for dialogue and global policy coherence; constructing a socio-economic floor; the global economy and the cross-border movement of people; and strengthening the international labour standards system. Examines the role of the ILO in mobilizing action for change.

This Report offers an overview of how the ILO can develop a central recommendation of the World Commission on the Social Dimension of Globalization, that decent work should become a global goal, not just an ILO goal. Six broad policy themes are examined for detailed reflection: national policies to address globalization, decent work in global production systems, global policy coherence for growth, investment and employment, constructing a socio-economic floor, the global economy and the cross-border movement of people, and strengthening the international labour standards system. The Report also discusses how the ILO can respond to the Commission’s call for the multilateral system to enhance participation and accountability by mobilizing global tripartism to make a full contribution to the building of a social dimension for globalization.
