Summary (English)

One of the ILO's principal means of action to achieve the realization of this basic human right is the setting of applicable international labour standards. Since the establishment of the ILO, the ILC has adopted 31 Conventions and 23 Recommendations on social security. In 2002, the ILO Governing Body confirmed eight out of these 31 Conventions as up-to-date social security Conventions.
