Tackling child labour: From commitment to action

Tackling child labour: From commitment to action

ILO, June 2012, 32 pages

This Policy Note considers the progress that ILO member States are making in the application of ILO Conventions and Recommendations. It draws on two reports considered by the 2012 International Labour Conference: 'Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work: From commitment to action' and 'Giving globalization a human face'.

It points out that while some progress is being made in reducing child labour in too many cases the rights contained in these international standards are still not fully applied in practice and enforced.
