Child Labor and Environmental Health: Governmental Obligations and Human Rights

Child Labor and Environmental Health: Governmental Obligations and Human Rights

This 2012 article from the International Journal of Pediatrics is a discussion of the roles that governments, international human rights groups, the private sector, and media play, and should play, in reducing the numbers of children working in hazardous occupations around the world. This is especially in consideration of the fact that 174 countries have ratified the Convention concerning the Prohibition and Immediate Action for the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour. Two investigations of child labour abuses are highlighted, one in Mali and one in Kazakhstan.
