Child Labor and Human Rights : Making Children Matter
"A great read and a fresh perspective! This book not only covers the historical and practical realities of working children, but also offers strong theoretical frameworks for discussing the most difficult issues -and most important, gives guidance onwhat should be done next." - Martha Nelems, Former Senior Policy Analyst, Children's Rights, CIDA
The book Child Labour and Human Rights was recently released, containing three chapters authored by UNICEF staff members Victor Karunan, Victoria Rialp, and Susan Bissell. This book brings the child rights discourse face to face with the human rights discourse, finding some critical middle ground on the issue of child labour. We conducted an interview with child labour expert Dr. Bill Myers on the occassion of the release of the book, and here are a few of his comments.
