Freedom of Association as a Core Labor Right and the ILO: Toward a Normative Framework

Law and Ethics of Human Rights 3 (2):110-153 (2009)
Freedom of association operates as an organizational "meta-norm," appreciated both as an independent value and as a touchstone for the institutional design of the International Labour Organization . Despite the renewed interest of the ILO in various aspects of the norm, its understanding of freedom of association lacks a comprehensive normative framework. This article presents such a conceptual framework and a critical in-depth analysis of current ILO freedom of association jurisprudence. Freedom of association should be understood in terms of equitable dialogue , a term offered and developed herein, as an understanding that is already partly embedded in ILO jurisprudence
