Map of the Month 06/2023

At the 111th International Labour Conference (ILC) in Geneva, for the first time in the history of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the draft programme and budget had to be put to a vote. A coalition of African countries and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) rejected ILO support for disadvantaged groups (including LGBTQI+). The compromise finally adopted still explicitly includes protection against discrimination on the basis of race, sexual orientation and gender identity and was adopted by 477 votes (11 against, 7 abstentions).
