World Report on Child Labour: Economic vulnerability, social protection and the fight against child labour
This report focuses on the role of social protection in preventing and reducing child labour. It is the first in the series of World Reports on Child Labour called for in the outcome document, the Roadmap, emerging from The Hague Global Child Labour Conference of 2010. The World Report series is seen as an additional vehicle for promoting effective action against child labour, complementing the periodic Global Estimates exercise and other global ILO publications. The series is aimed in particular at monitoring and helping to inform global efforts in the lead-up to the 2016 target date for the elimination of the worst forms of child labour. The World Reports are an integral part of the Global Action Plan on the elimination of child labour, endorsed by the ILO’s Governing Body in November 2010, and by the November 2012 Action Plan to promote fundamental principles and rights at work.
