A framework of international labour standards on social minimum standards to ensure a level playing field in the global economy.

The ILO’s Governing Body has identified a number of conventions as ‘fundamental’, covering subjects that are considered as fundamental principles and rights at work: freedom of association and the effective recognition of the right to collective bargaining; the elimination of all forms of forced or compulsory labour; the effective abolition of child labour; and the elimination of discrimination in respect of employment and occupation. In addition there are those designated as ‘priority’ instruments for ratification by member states due to their importance for the functioning of the international labour standards system.
