Chapter Summary

This chapter concentrates on an analysis of substance with a detailed examination of the international legal obligations in the articles of the Convention. While generally following the presentation and grouping of the articles in the Convention the chapter concerns with the 'solutions' adopted to address particularly complex questions. It explains the conceptual approach to the content of the differing parts of the Convention and, in particular, the role of the articles and the regulations, which as the excerpt below and the amendment procedures suggest, both 'lay down' rights and principles. The chapter begins with a discussion of the preamble to the MLC, 2006. Although the more administrative articles relating to the operation of the Convention may not seem important to the Convention's broader policy objectives, they are significant in terms of changes to the International Labor Organisation (ILO) procedures and to the future operation and development of the Convention.

Keywords:articles of the Convention; international labour organisation (ILO) procedures; MLC, 2006
