ILO’s Centenary year to officially open on 22 January, 2019

The report of the ILO Global Commission on the Future of Work will be launched officially on 22 January, 2019.

GENEVA (ILO News) – The ILO will be celebrating its 100th anniversary throughout 2019 with a series of global, regional and national events. 22 January, 2019 will see the official start of the “ILO100” celebrations, with the launch of the report by the Global Commission on the Future of Work  in Geneva.

It will be the culmination of a process that began in 2015 with the Director-General’s Report on the Future of Work Centenary Initiative  to the International Labour Conference, followed by a series of national dialogues in ILO member States.

The Global Commission was set up to undertake an in-depth examination of the future of work and make recommendations on how to achieve social justice in the 21st century. It is made up of eminent individuals with outstanding personal achievements and vision. They represent a balance of geographical regions and experience.

The work of the Commission has been organized around four “centenary conversations”:

  • Work and society
  • Decent jobs for all
  • The organization of work and production
  • The governance of work

Its report is expected to provide the basis for discussion and engagement with ILO constituents (Governments, employers’ and workers’ representatives) and partners and will be submitted to the Centenary session of the International Labour Conference in 2019.

More details about the launch of the report will be available as we get closer to the event.
