From principles to practice: A method for identifying income sufficiency when applying International Legal Standards (ESS — Working Paper No. 61)
This paper gives content to the idea of a minimum income as reflected in ILO Conventions and Recommendations. It also aims to provide some practical guidance as to how such minima can best be operationalized. The practical purpose of this analysis is to define a reference income level that can play a role in defining adequate levels of social protection benefits, as discussed in ILO standards.
