Summary
"Child Labor and Human Rights provides a comprehensive overview of the phenomenon of child labor from a human rights perspective. The authors consider the connections between human rights and abusive child labor, the pros and cons of a rights-based approach to the problem, and specific strategies for effective change. They make an indispensable contribution to the growing effort to abolish abusive and exploitive child labor practices."--BOOK JACKET
