[SUEPO] ILO-AT: 90 years old - and in need of repair

Summary
On 5 May 2017 the Tribunal held a symposium to mark its 90th anniversary.  The program can be found at the Tribunal’s website[1].  As can be expected from such an event there was much praise for the Tribunal. While some of it is merited, not all of it is: the Tribunal is showing its age. It needs to catch up with the current legal and practical developments. The present paper explains the reasons.
