The International Labour Organization was established in 1919 by the Treaty of Versailles and became the first specialized agency of the United Nations system in 1946. The ILO has four strategic objectives: to promote and realize fundamental principles and rights at work; to create greater opportunities for women and men to secure decent employment and income; to enhance the coverage and effectiveness of social protection for all; and to strengthen tripartism and social dialogue.
