In resolving the social and economic problems within the global dimension, countries try to realize social policies according to ILO norms, because nowadays many factors influence the future of the labour movement. Turkey became a member of ILO in 1932 and approved 40 conventions of this organization. Despite the approved conventions, the Turkish social security system has still some problems. Besides that, the tourism sector plays a very important economic role for the Turkish economy. In this research, we tried to carry out the application of ILO norms in the Turkish tourism sector, because the norms are important steps to be realized in the course of E. U. membership for Turkey. This work was supported by the Research Fund of the Istanbul University. Project Number: 1605/30042001.
