This chapter discusses the mandate, role, and form of governance of the International Labour Organization (ILO), and traces how its concern to work for social justice within capitalism has shifted from a focus on national labour and social policies to a focus on global labour and social policies. Its struggle with the World Bank over pension policy is reviewed and assessed. The chapter then turns to the struggle for global social policy synergy and improved global social governance, using the example of the social protection floor to show how the ILO has managed to secure some fragile advances in both.

Keywords:   ILO, global social policy synergy, global social governance, social protection floor
