International Cooperation

Our Nordic Counterparts

International Labour Organization
Iceland has been a member of the ILO since 1945

Iceland falls under the categorie of state provided conciliation and mediation services like for example the other Nordic Countries, Belgium, New Zealand, India and Indonesia. In some other countries, like Australia, South Africa, The United Kingdom and the United States, agencies are resourced by the state, but independent of it. The State Conciliation and Mediation Office follows ILO‘s information on the latest in the field of concilitation and mediation.
