ILC 100 VI vii,Introduction,Background and objective. Background, 1 At its 97th Session 2008 the International Labour Conference adopted the ILO. Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization The Declaration recognizes that. based on the mandate contained in the ILO Constitution including the Declaration of. Philadelphia 1944 which continues to be fully relevant has the solemn obligation to. further among the nations of the world programmes which will achieve the objectives of full. employment and the raising of standards of living a minimum living wage and the extension of. social security measures to provide a basic income to all in need along with all the other. objectives set out in the Declaration of Philadelphia 1. 2 The Declaration states inter alia that, i n the context of accelerating change the commitments and efforts of Members and the. Organization to implement the ILO s constitutional mandate including through international. labour standards and to place full and productive employment and decent work at the centre of. economic and social policies should be based on the four equally important strategic objectives. of the ILO through which the Decent Work Agenda is expressed. The Annex to the document stipulates that The Organization will introduce a scheme of. recurrent discussions by the International Labour Conference so as to. i understand better the diverse realities and needs of its Members with respect to each of the. strategic objectives respond more effectively to them using all the means of action at its. disposal including standards related action technical cooperation and the technical and. research capacity of the Office and adjust its priorities and programmes of action. accordingly and, ii assess the results of the ILO s activities with a view to informing programme budget and. other governance decisions 2, 3 At its 304th Session March 2009 the Governing Body decided that the second.
recurrent discussion at the 100th Session of the International Labour Conference in 2011. would be devoted to the strategic objective of social protection and specifically focus on. social security 3, ILO ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization International Labour Conference. 97th Session Geneva 10 June 2008,ibid Annex Part II B.

ILO during the previous decade The resolution and conclusions concerning social. security adopted at the 89th Session of the Conference in 2001 renewed the ILO s. commitment to the extension of social security coverage and to the improvement of the. governance financing and administration of social security 4. 5 Subsequently the Global Campaign on Social Security and Coverage for All was. launched at the 91st Session of the Conference in 2003 The activities of the Campaign. now the catalyst for the ILO s activities in social security were reviewed in a report to. the Committee on Employment and Social Policy ESP Committee in November 2008. which concluded on the need for further tripartite consultations on the elements and. possible form of an additional mechanism to guide improvements of social security. coverage in member States, 6 Following a request by ESP Committee members a Tripartite Meeting of Experts. on Strategies for the Extension of Social Security Coverage was held in Geneva from. 2 to 4 September 2009 The Office reported on the proceedings of the Meeting to the. Governing Body in November 2009 5 The report concluded that the discussions. amongst the delegates, reflected a large measure of agreement concerning the importance of social security and its.
role not only in individual welfare but also with regard to broad economic growth and. development There was a consensus on the universal right to and need for social security and. a reminder from all sides on the importance of social dialogue. 7 The Summary of the Chairperson of the Meeting explicitly endorsed the two. dimensional strategy that the Office had pragmatically developed to extend the coverage. of social security The horizontal dimension comprised the extension of income. security and access to health care starting at a modest level to the whole population. The second vertical dimension sought to provide higher levels of income security and. health protection in line with economic and social development when people were faced. with fundamental life contingencies such as unemployment ill health disability. maternity loss of breadwinner and old age, 8 The horizontal dimension is conceptually identical to the idea of the transfer. component of the Social Protection Floor SPF developed by the United Nations Chief. Executives Board for Coordination UN CEB which promotes a set of basic transfers or. entitlements enabling persons to access essential goods and services The UN CEB has. adopted the SPF as one of its joint crisis initiatives The ILO together with the World. Health Organization WHO and a number of collaborating agencies are leading the. initiative At its core is the building of a coalition of international agencies and donors. supporting countries to plan and implement sustainable social protection schemes In the. meantime the United Nations Summit on the Millennium Development Goals. Millennium Summit meeting in New York in September 2010 endorsed the SPF. concept as an important contribution to consolidating and achieving further. development gains and stressed that social protection systems that address and reduce.
