The Concept of Discrimination in ILO Convention No. 111
This paper first recalls the aim and scope of Convention No. 111 which obliges the State to declare and pursue a national policy designed to promote equality of opportunity and treatment in respect of employment and occupation. Next, it provides a case-law-based analysis of the concept of discrimination within the meaning of the Convention. It concentrates on international law, but national law is referred to in cases where this contributes to a better understanding of the Convention. The emphasis is placed primarily on questions on which major decisions have been given in recent years by the ILO supervisory bodies and cases concerning present-day questions and problems.--SCAD summary.
