International Labour Organization (ILO) Director: Sarah Carroll
The International Labour Organization is a United Nations Agency that deals with labour problems, predominantly international labour standards, social protection, and work opportunities for all. This specific UN body will cover two current pressing topics in the international community. Of the approximately 260 million children employed around the world, the International Labour Organization estimates that 170 million are involved in child labour or work that is “mentally, physically, socially, or morally dangerous and harmful.” This committee will seek a solution to end such forms of child labour, while also addressing the rights of migrant workers who often get shorthanded due to their place of birth. This body will need to work together to find a solution and communicate the 1) Promotion of the Rights of Migrant Workers and 2) Promotion of the rights of children regarding “Sweatshops”.
