    Abstract

    Based on the household surveys, carried out in 1995, the present research examines the determinants of child labour in Côte d'Ivoire. The study reviews the explanatory factors of supply and demand of this phenomenon. Subsequently, by using a bivariate probit model, this paper attempts to confirm the testable implications of the theoretical framework. The results obtained show that the early employment of children results from the complex conjugation ofinternal and external factors to the household. They also reveal the dominating role of socialcapital whichwas neglected in the economic analysis of the participation of children insocioeconomic activities.(Full text in French)
