Tackling child labour. Policy options for achieving sustainable reductions in children at work
This paper aims to identify the appropriate policy response to substantially reduce child labour and review key policy options. Key policy options fall with the broad categories of prevention, second chances education and direct action. The main burden for a sustainable reduction of child labour and increase in human capital investment rests on prevention. “Second chance” policies targeting children already exposed to child labor although likely less significant in resource terms, should not be neglected. “Direct action” is needed to identify and rescue laborers in forms of child labor that pose a direct threat to their health and safety or that violate fundamental human rights.
