Why a policy on child labour?
A clear national policy against the exploitation of children is the fundamental basis and point of departure for action against child labour. The special merit of a national policy lies in the fact that it articulates societal objectives and commitments and provides a coherent framework for an associated programme of action. A national policy and programme of action on child labour should be placed in the context of national, social and economic development policies that address the larger issues of poverty, education and development.
