Child Deprivation: An Extended Approach to Child Labour

Author

  • Motkuri, Venkatanarayana

Abstract

The present paper imparts that it is need of the hour to take a broader view of child labour to include not only the reportedly working children but also those nowhere children, namely those neither reported working nor attend school. In line with the perspectives of human capital, human development, and human rights, this paper conceives education as the most basic right of children and re-christens the child labour and nowhere children as deprived children.
