COMMITTEE INTRODUCTION:

The International Labor Organisation (ILO) is the only tripartite U.N. agency, consisting of three distinct bodies namely the International labor Conference, the Governing body and the International Labor office. The formation of this organisation is the outcome of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919 with a view to reflecting the belief that “universal and lasting peace can be attained only if it is based on social justice”. The ILO has 187 Member States working closely in order to resolve international problems regarding labor and bring about large-scale transformation.

Since its inception, the ILO has dedicated itself to spearheading international endeavors to promote social equality and universally recognized human and labor rights. Throughout its 100 years of operation, the ILO has assisted in enhancing the working condition of men and women internationally by establishing labor standards, incessantly developing policies and endorsing programs that serve the aforementioned purpose with each of its bodies playing a discrete role and handling specific tasks.
