Human Rights in International Law

Francis Wolf

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the protection and implementation of those human rights which are protected by the International Labour Organisation (ILO). It analyses the functioning of the independent international machinery for the supervision of the application of international labour conventions, which was established as early as 1927 and thus performed an important pioneering role as a model for universal and regional human rights conventions. It emphasizes the role of the ILO in the ‘mobilization of shame on the tripartite basis’, and discusses the sophisticated and effective ILO procedures of investigation of violations and consideration of complaints, which include impartial consideration by quasi-judicial bodies. Teaching suggestions, syllabus, and bibliographies are provided at the end of the chapter.

Keywords:   ILO, human rights, labour conventions, violations
