This lecture series was established in 2013 by NUI and ILO to honour Edward J. Phelan. Born in Ireland, Edward Phelan had a distinguished career at the International Labour Organisation. He was official advocate of the ILO Project at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919, became its fourth Director in 1941 and Director General under its new constitution in 1946. He was the innovator of the ILO ‘tripartite’ formula which forms the basis of representation at International Labour Conferences. Each country’s delegation includes not only Government delegates, but also representatives of workers’ and employers’ organizations, a model for social partnership.
