Child labour. Targeting the intolerable. Report 86 VI (1)
International Labour Conference, 86th Session, 1998. Report VI, Part 1. Drawing on the experience of the ILO, including its International Programme for the Elimination of Child Labour, this report surveys international and national law and practice and points the way towards effective action through new international standards. Includes a list of ratifications by country of relevant ILO Conventions on minimum age and forced labour (as at 15 August 1996).
The world community is calling for an end to the intolerable: the persistent exploitation of children in slave-like and bonded conditions, hazardous and arduous work, prostitution, pornography and other unspeakable situations. Drawing on ILO action against child labour, including the experience of the ILO's International Programme for the Elimination of Child Labour, this timely report details legal and practical measures aimed at removing children from debt bondage, prostitution, and hazardous occupations and activities. It will prove invaluable to all those individuals and organizations campaigning for the ban and the immediate removal of children working in hazardous occupations.
