The Office of International Labor Affairs in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor leads the Department of State’s efforts to advance labor rights in U.S. foreign policy. Promoting freedom of association is key to achieving inclusive growth, enhancing stability, and leveling the playing field for American workers and businesses. Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor Overview tasked the Capstone team to report on the various accountability mechanisms through which labor complaints can be made or labor violations can be highlighted, as well as the history of their use. The Capstone will analyze the International Labor Organization Commission of Inquiry process and other similar mechanism at the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, at the UN through the Universal Periodic Reviews, as well as in small multilateral organizations such as the Organization of American States and the Organization for Islamic Cooperation. There are also similar mechanisms related to trade in various free trade agreements, the Generalized System of Preferences, and the African Growth and Opportunity Act, among others. The value of this analysis would be to ensure that the U.S. is consistent across the different mechanisms as well as making sure the U.S. is aware of all of the mechanisms that exist.
