About the seminar

In 2019 the International Labour Organization will celebrate its 100th anniversary. In his talk Daniel Maul (IAKH) will give a short introduction in the history of the ILO. A special emphasis will be given to the ILO’s evolution from an organisation catering mostly to the needs of industrial workers in the West into an agency of “global social policy”. 

The lecture is free and open to all but requires registration. Lunch will be served.
