Heads of State visit the Centenary International Labour Conference

The 108th (Centenary) Session of the International Labour Conference is being held from 10 to 21 June 2019 in Geneva, in two locations, the Palais des Nations and the ILO headquarters, with more than 5000 delegates from 187 countries and more than 45 world leaders partaking in discussions to tackle the most pressing issues in the world of work.

The International Labour Conference is the ILO’s highest decision making body. It meets annually, bringing together the tripartite delegations from the Organization’s 187 member States and a number of observers from other international actors to consider a series of topics placed on its agenda  by the Governing Body of the ILO.

The Conference is composed of a plenary and a number of committees set up to consider the standing items on the Conference agenda, and technical committees to deal with technical items. Details about each standing and technical committee are available on the page Committees on the agenda .
