Abstract
The International Labour Organization was founded in 1919 in the belief that peace and social justice go hand in hand. This book explores key ideas that the ILO has championed and applied through the political and economic upheavals of the last 90 years: rights at work, the quality of employment, income protection, employment and poverty reduction, a fair globalization and today's overriding goal of decent work for all. It tells a remarkable story, with both progress and setbacks, and hightlights the challenges ahead in a world where economic crisis crisis underlines the urgency of global action for social justice.
