Michael Cichon was Director of the ILO Social Security Department from 2005 to 2012. He served as the representative of the UN Secretary-General in the social protection committee of the 101th International Labour Conference that adopted Recommendation No. 202 in June 2012. He is President of the International Council on Social Welfare (ICSW). The views expressed here are those of the author and do not reflect official positions of the ILO or the ICSW. The author explicitly wishes to recognize the many ideas that were developed by the staff of the ILO's Social Security Department who as a team created the momentum and shaped the content of the first standard setting procedure in social security for about two and a half decades and that are reflected in this article.
