About ILO

Advancing social justice, promoting decent work

The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a United Nations agency for the world of labour. We bring together governments, employers, and workers to drive a human-centred approach to the future of labour through creating new employment opportunities, as well as improving worker’s rights, social protection, and social dialogue.

The ILO has 187 member States and is one of the oldest U.N. agencies founded in the year of 1919.
