“One question accompanied the ILO from the very first day: Whose organization, exactly, would and could it be; and what kinds of workers and what forms of work would it represent? Both geographically and with regard to the problems it addressed, the ILO was far from being an organization that covered all the global realities of work but rather started from a clear European and industrial bias.” (Daniel Maul)
