    Rapid assessment on child labour in the urban informal sector in Jordan - Governorates of Amman, Mafraq and Irbid

    12 September 2016

    The key objective of this study is to provide up to date and detailed information on the dynamics and characteristics of child labourers who live in urban environments in Jordan and who work in the informal employment sector. While there was no specific intention that the research should focus on a particular nationality, the current situation in Jordan regarding Syrian refugees and national and international interest in how host communities are managing the high numbers of refugees means that the main nationalities focused on in this report are Syrian and Jordanian.

    Moving towards a child labour free Jordan – A collection of emerging good practices

    30 August 2016

    These good practices from this ILO-related project aim to document what worked well in creating conditions to prevent or eliminate child labour in Jordan. The examples range from developing a national strategy to combat child labour, documenting the prevalence of child labour, and facilitating communication between government ministries, to devising innovative approaches to address unique situations. Features of each good practice may be transferable to other national and regional contexts.
