Universal social protection for human dignity, social justice, and sustainable development

This General Survey is based on the reports communicated under article 19 of the Constitution by countries on the measures taken to give effect to the provisions of the Recommendation. The Committee has also taken into account available information on relevant law and practice, and its main observations on the application of ratified ILO social security Conventions, as well as the reports on the application of the European Code of Social Security (ECSS). The present Survey builds on the information contained in the previous General Survey concerning the social security instruments, the ILO World Social Protection Report 2017–19, and other relevant publications.
