Challenges to coherence: exploring the European Union’s role in the International labour organization

Bregt Saenen and Jan Orbie UGent (2011) The EU in international fora : lessons for the union's external representation after Lisbon. In Schriftenreihe des Arbeitskreises : Europäische Integration 72. p.159-174
abstract
This chapter explores the EU’s role in the ILO by summarising and integrating some recent studies on this topic. First, we look at the discourse used to frame the EU-ILO partnership. This apparently ‘natural’ relationship has been disputed on various fronts. Second, three interrelated challenges will be outlined: (1) does the Union succeed in coordinating member state positions and speaking with one voice in the context of the ILO?; (2) are the EU norms promoted in the context of the ILO inspired by social objectives or by market considerations?; and (3) can the EU indeed ‘upload’ its social norms to the ILO? For each of these challenges, we will sketch some major criticisms as well as counterarguments. Finally, it will be argued that the Treaty of Lisbon does not seem to fundamentally alter the nature of these challenges.
