Continuing the Struggle: The ILO Centenary and the Future of Global Worker Rights

Washington, DC
Updated dates: November 21-22, 2019
Call for Participants with a new submission deadline of February 1, 2019

October 29, 2019, will mark the one-hundredth anniversary of the first International Labor Conference (ILC), held in the Pan American Union Building in Washington, D.C., under the nascent International Labor Organization (ILO). This conference will mark the centenary of that watershed event. It will be both retrospective and prospective. It will look back to analyze and evaluate a century of efforts to advance workers’ rights around the globe. It will look forward to ponder the ways in which global supply chains, financialization, and the growth of the “gig” economy and other forms of non-standard work challenge the ILO system and raise questions about the very definition of employers and employees and the basis of labor relations.

The conference invites participants who can contribute to the exploration of a range of themes related to the ILO’s work. These include: Global Workers, Global Supply Chains, Global Lives, Gender, Sexuality and Labor Rights, Building Workplace Power and Global Workers' Rights.
On Shifting Ground: Labor Standards, Policy and the Future of Work.

Please send paper, presentation, or panel proposals to kilwp@georgetown.edu.
Deadline for submissions is February 1, 2019
