Luc Cortebeeck

Former President of the International Labour Organization

To celebrate the 100th anniversary of the International Labour Organization (ILO), UNU-CRIS is delighted to welcome Mr. Luc Cortebeeck to deliver a lecture reflecting on the ILO's history and its impact in the fight for social justice.

Mr. Cortebeeck was President of the International Labor Organization from 2017 to 2018, after serving as Vice-President of the ILO Governing Body for six years. Mr. Cortebeeck has a long and distinguished history in the trade union movement, both within Belgium, having previously served as National President of the ACV (Algemeen Christelijk Vakverbond or General Christian Trade Union), and internationally, and will draw on his experiences in this field, together with 20 years’ experience with, and in, the ILO, to evaluate the work of the organization since its inception in 1919. 

The only tripartite U.N. agency, since 1919 the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member States , to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men.
