"The International Labour Organization (ILO) is devoted to promoting social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights, pursuing its founding mission that social justice is essential to universal and lasting peace. As the only tripartite U.N. agency, the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers representatives of 187 member States, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men."

Disability and Labor
The most devastating form of discrimination against people with disabilities (PwD) is discrimination in the labor market, making them unable to enter into suitable apprenticeships and gain knowledge or skills. Delegates will discuss how employers can be incentivized to provide opportunities for PwDs within their capacity and meet free market needs, and how can PWDs be integrated into the vocational system and job market.
Ensuring fair and equal treatment
of migrant workers
In many countries with huge economic growth, migrant workers are a fundamental building block of the economy. Oftentimes their rights and privileges are severely limited in comparison to workers who are citizens of those countries or skilled workers from first-world nations. This disparity is not only represented in wages and salaries but also in other work related benefits and working conditions.

I am Kanis Fatama Jabin (I go by Fatama), 21 years old and will be serving as your ILO chair. As a young 7th grader, I walked into my first MUN conference at my international school in Riyadh and fell in love. Since then, I have participated in conferences in many countries. Currently, I am studying economics at the University of Bonn, and so far it's been the longest time I’ve lived in one place. I grew up trilingual, being equally fluent in Bangla, German and English. I love having a good debate, discussing solutions to problems, teaching, making videos, trying (and failing) to make new recipes and feeding my unhealthy tiny house obsession (small houses, oftentimes on movable trailers).
I’m Noémi, born and raised in a small town in the “beak” of Slovenia, the country’s bilingual territory. The universe just blessed me with a BA diploma in international relations, and if everything goes well, I’ll be starting my Masters Degree in October. MUN was introduced to me via a friend who forced me to join the MUN Slovenia Club (MUNSC) in Ljubljana and I haven’t left since. I even had the honor to be the president of the club and the Project Manager of Salient MUN 2022.
My free time is devoted mostly to music, learning languages, intriguing debates, and board games. One might say I’m quite talkative. Choose topics from ultimate frisbee to dorm-friendly cooking tips, and I’m your person. Can’t wait to meet you all soon!
