Measuring Implementation

  • W. R. Böhning


The implementation dimension measures the degree to which countries give legal and practical effect to the commitments they make in international law by virtue of joining the International Labour Organization and by ratifying its core Conventions. The measurement method evaluates at the international level what happens at the national level. Given that this dimension is calibrated on ratifications in the sense that implementation problems are calculated as a fixed proportion of the value of a Convention, the detection of lack of implementation presupposes ratification except in respect of the principles and rights of freedom of association where the CFA’s procedures enable international verification to take place even in countries that have not ratified the relevant Conventions (Nos. 87 and 98).
