Brazil-ILO partnership in South-South co-operation: a historical perspective of strategy and solidarity in the multilateral system.

The article deals with the main moments that marked the partnership between Brazil and the International Labor Organization (ILO) in the context of South-South cooperation. The hypothesis is that states can pursue strategic interests in the multilateral system without giving up the principle of solidarity between peoples. In addition to the introduction, the text is structured in three sections. The first deals with the origins of South-South cooperation in the 1940s to 1970s and the development of the concept from the perspective of the ILO.

The second chapter deals with the evolution of the partnership between Brazil and the ILO, which began as part of a United Nations development assistance program and culminated in the establishment of specific South-South cooperation instruments. The third chapter, which is also the conclusion, discusses the legacy of South-South cooperation in promoting the Decent Work Agenda and fundamental labor principles and rights, in line with the ILO’s mandate and the premises of Brazilian foreign policy.

The main theme of the article is the relationship between Brazil and the ILO, which has been forged over more than a century, with an emphasis on the partnership established and consolidated through South-South cooperation.
