Summary (English)

International labour standards are by nature universal in their vocation. They are intended to be applied by the 175 member States of the ILO, irrespective of their legal system or their level of economic development. It should also be recalled that ILO Conventions are international treaties of a specific nature. They are adopted by the Conference, which is composed of representatives of the governments of member States, as well as representatives of workers and employers.
