Despite the increasing ratification of international conventions to prevent the use of child labour, ILO estimates indicate almost one quarter of the world's children aged 10-14 years and about twelve per cent of children aged 5-9 years are at work. Among these children, about 179 million are subject to the 'worst forms' of employment such as forced and bonded labour, trafficking, prostitution and other forms of exploitation. This report examines the reality of child labour around the world, the economic causes of child labour and implications for the future development of countries concerned; and considers effective mechanisms and policies to tackle the problem, at the international and national level, as well as private initiatives and corporate social responsibility.
