Labour inspectorates, together with other public institutions and in collaboration with social partners, have long been active in addressing child labour and its worst forms through the combined use of advisory and enforcement actions. Despite these efforts, child labour continues to be a concern worldwide and, in most countries, inspectorates could leverage the action of other relevant players, among which are child labour monitors. Whilst many good practices of collaboration are recognised, it is also true that the synergies of these two mechanisms are not well known and thus there is the potential to improve collaboration.
