This volume contains the lectures given by prominent civil servants and representatives of the ""International Employers' Association"" (IOE) and the ""International Confederation of Free Trade Unions"" to law students from various European countries at the occasion of their visit to the ""International Labour Organization"". The purpose of these lectures is to expand on the major problems the ILO, as the social conscience of the world, will be confronted with in the next century. These lectures open a panorama of worldwide trends, which will co-determine the future outlook of our societies. The ""Geneva Lectures"" deal with following important topics: the world of work; the informal economy; globalization and the confrontation it involves; the future of the trade union movement; the role of the employer's associations; the ILO Declaration on fundamental principles and rights at work (1998), child labour; international labour standards and the codes of conduct of multinational enterprises. They give the reader an insight in the world of tomorrow and how one of the leading international bodies reflects on how to deal with them.
