The ILO's Concept of Decent Work in the Light of the Social Teaching of the Church and its Relevance to Nigeria

By Matthew Irunnaya Ezea

Owing to many ills which have enveloped the world of work, the International Labor Organization came up with a concept: decent work. This book examines the extent to which this concept is founded on the basic principle that, in labor, it is man who comes first, a principle that has been clearly brought out by Christian social ethics. Nigeria - having a great share of socio-economic and other woes - parades a world of work that is caught up in the mud of problems. The book identifies and analyzes Nigeria's problems with a view to finding solutions based on the said concept. The book argues that decent work is a vital desire and remedy to the mosaic of socio-economic ills that plague a nation that is expected to play a leading role in Africa.
