Can we overestimate the importance of ILO recommendation 202?

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of ILO Convention 102 and 10th anniversary of ILO Recommendation 202, WSM's General Director Bart Verstraeten and Advocacy Officer Koen Detavernier wrote a blog for Global Coalition for Social Protection Floors.

'Even though several important events and decisions at the ILO preceded the adoption of the Social Protection Floors Recommendation, No. 202 by the International Labour Conference in 2012, it is difficult to overestimate its importance. This new international labour standard, complementary to Convention 102, brought the issue of social protection firmly back on the agenda and in the discourse of the broader development community (...) There is definitely a growing consensus about the right of every person in the world to adequate social protection throughout the life cycle.'
