Decent work and social justice: a spiritual perspective

Apr 25, 2012

A new publication “Convergences: decent work and social justice in religious traditions” by International Labour Organization, explains the position of various religious traditions regarding social justice and decent work issues.

Convergences: Decent work and social justice in religious traditions- A handbook

Publisher: International Labour Organization (ILO)

The ILO handbook , “Convergences: Decent work and social justice in religious traditions – A handbook” is aimed at contributing a better understanding of the meaning of work across various major religious traditions--Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, Judaism, and Buddhism.

The ILO is built on the principle that labour is not a commodity and upholds work done in conditions of freedom, equity, security, and human dignity.

For this reason, the ILO promotes not just work or employment but “decent work”. The publication explores the specific contribution and commitments of some religious traditions to social justice, dignity at work, and economic rights. 

The publication is published in four languages- English, Spanish, Thai, and French.
