Created in the aftermath of World War I, the International Labour Organization (ILO) has a rather unique distinction in that it is the only remaining major creation of the Treaty of Versailles. For the past sixty years, it has been a part of the United Nations, and along with formulating international labor standards it provides technical assistance in such fields as employment policy, working conditions, and labor statistics. While the reach of the ILO is quite broad, a good way to get a sense of this range is to look over the "What's New" section on the homepage. Here visitors will find information about such events as the International Day of the World's Indigenous People and a recent report on street children in St. Petersburg. Visitors can also read their in-house publication, "World of Work", and watch a movie about child labor. It is worth noting that many of the publications offered here are available in Arabic, Chinese, French, Spanish and German.
