CHILDREN’S RIGHTS AND THE POST-2015 DEVELOPMENT AGENDA AT GLOBAL COMPACT+15 (23 JUNE 2015, UN HEADQUARTERS, NEW YORK CITY) / What process of influence did international labor standards organizations have in the process? What about relation with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights?

Alignment with international labour standards and with recent developments in the area of business and human rights were given top priority, as called for during the consultation. Thus, the Expert Reference Group included representatives from ILO-IPEC and the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), as well as those involved in the development of the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Additionally, the Steering Group worked closely with ILO-IPEC and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on the language of the Principles right up until their publication.
