The aim of the Historical Perspectives series is to use a greater understanding of the history of childhood to shed light on the quest for improved policies and programmes for dealing with contemporary child-related social issues. In investigating the social and economic factors and policy measures that have proved instrumental in all but ending child labour in industrialized countries, these papers aim to direct attention to measures that might be adopted to accelerate substantially the movement towards elimination at least of the most harmful and exploitative forms of child labour in today’s developing world.
