Tripartite declaration of principles concerning multinational enterprises and social policy

The principles laid down in the Tripartite Declaration of Principles concerning Multinational Enterprises and Social Policy (MNE Declaration) offer guidelines to multinational enterprises, governments, and employers’ and workers’ organizations in such areas as employment, training, conditions of work and life, and industrial relations. This guidance is founded substantially on principles contained in international labour Conventions and Recommendations. The ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and its Follow-up, which is universally recognized as essential for realizing the objective of decent work for all, also underpins the guidance offered. Annex I provides a list of international labour Conventions and Recommendations relevant to the MNE Declaration.
