International Commission for Labor Rights: Critical Assistance for working people and trade unions worldwide

    The International Commission for Labor Rights, ICLR, is a non-profit organization that is based in New York, coordinating the pro bono work of a global network of lawyers committed to advancing workers’ rights through legal research, advocacy, cross-border collaboration, and the cutting-edge use of international and domestic legal mechanisms. On occasion, ICLR’s legal network also responds to urgent appeals for independent reporting on gross labor rights violations. The network was founded in 2001 as a project of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, at the request of more than 50 national trade unions and global federations, and the coordinating secretariat in New York was set up in 2005. The network aspires to be a resource for trade unions and workers around the world.
