Studies in employment and social policy ; v. 50.
This book assesses the catalogue of principles included in the ILO Recommendation on Social Protection Floors from a legal perspective. Despite the international community's recognition of social protection as a human right, the vast majority of the world's population still has no access to social protection. In a major effort to address this situation, the International Labour Conference unanimously adopted the Social Protection Floors Recommendation 202 of 2012. However, because of the wide variety of possible schemes (and techniques that can be employed to administer them), there is a genuine risk that important values relating to social protection will be overlooked in implementing the Recommendation. This book, a collection of essays, contains an in-depth analysis of the Recommendation and sets forth a clear and practicable set of principles that can be used both as a policy tool and as an assessment framework for the creation, maintenance, and supervision of a national social protection floor.
"This book focuses on the International Labour Organization Social Protection Floors Recommendation 202 of 2012" -- Page xxi. Based on papers discussed at a workshop held in Johannesburg, 12-13 September 2016. -- Page xxi.
