ITCILO launches Compendium of Court Decisions

At the International Training Centre of the ILO (ITCILO) we have opened an on-line database of judicial decisions in which domestic and international courts have relied on international labour standards and the pronouncements of ILO supervisory bodies to resolve the cases brought before them. The database is available in English, French and Spanish at

The decisions are presented in the form of summaries. At the end of each summary the full text of the decision is available in the original language.

Decisions can be accessed via three indexes:

1. by country (in the case of decisions of domestic courts)
2. by courts (in the case of decisions of international courts)
3. by subject
and through a full text search

Information on court decisions referring to international labour law, which can be included in the Compendium, are greatly appreciated. These can be sent to:
