BackgroundAs the largest membership-based organization in the world and a crucial constituent of the International Labour Organization (ILO), workers’ organizations have always fought against inequalities and advocated for peace, upholding human and labour rights and dignity for all. Thus, in the quest for a new social contract that is human-centred, workers’ organizations play a central role in adapting and designing a renewed social contract and determining what it should look like to address the challenges faced by workers across the globe.
This 2023 edition of the International Journal of Labour Research (IJLR), entitled A new social contract: achieving social justice in an era of accelerating change, aims to stimulate reflection on what a new social contract might entail and more specifically the role of workers’ organizations in engaging on the design and establishment of a new social contract within the multilateral system and at national level.
