Public opinion has expressed considerable concern about the persistence of child labour. Despite the increasing ratification of international conventions on this issue, 23% of the world’s children aged 10-14 are at work. But why do children still have to work? Under what conditions do children work? What are the implications of child labour for the future development of the countries concerned? What are the most effective policies to combat child labour, and how can they improve economic development?

This book seeks to answer these questions. After highlighting the reality of the many child labourers in the world, it reviews the economic causes of the phenomenon and the effectiveness of the various policies which have been implemented to reduce child labour.
