Fundamental rights at work and international labour standards
Labour law has long been seen by the ILO as an essential pillar of development and peace, within member States, as well as between States. This book looks at the application of the ILO's international labour standards by governments, employers and workers around the world. These standards on collective bargaining, forced and compulsory labour, equality of opportunity and treatment and protection of children and young people are closely linked with the ILO's Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, 1998. A detailed description of each instrument and its principles is discussed, along with specific problems encountered in applying that instrument at a national level.
