ILO Centenary

The Driving Force Birth and Evolution of Tripartism - The Role of the ILO Workers' Group

Beyond stating that the International Labour Organization has, since 1919, had a unique tripartite structure, with the participation of governments and employers’ and workers’ organizations, not much has been written about how tripartism actually works. The book gives examples of the dynamics at work between the three groups of the ILO and explains how, over time, the force that has driven its agenda has been the Workers’Group.
