No Just Transition Without Social Protection for Domestic Workers
During this year’s International Labour Conference’s 111th Session, the ILO discusses the priority theme of “Just Transition.” At IDWF, we firmly believe that environmental justice is a labor issue. Just transition means greening the economy in a way that is fair and inclusive of everyone concerned, creating decent work opportunities, and leaving no one behind.

Our movement refuses to be left behind, and domestic workers are front and center of Just Transition
Stop Human Trafficking, Protect Domestic Workers!
In addition to the priority theme and recurrent discussion on Social Protection, the Committee on the Application of Standards (CAS) will consider the Report of the Committee of Experts on the Application of Conventions and Recommendations.
A sitting of the Committee will be devoted to the examination of cases of serious failure to report, which includes the Lebanon case and the noncompliance of Convention 29 on Forced Labor and Human Trafficking by its Government. The CAS notes with deep concern that the Government’s report, due since 2018, has not been received. In light of its urgent appeal launched to the Government in 2021, the Committee proceeds with the examination of the application of the Convention, using a joint report developed by IDWF with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC).
Fortunately, domestic workers will be represented at the CAS discussions and our spokesperson will address the priority demands of migrant domestic workers in Lebanon.
