The Understanding Children’s Work (UCW) programme is an inter-agency research cooperation initiative involving the International Labour Organisation (ILO), UNICEF and the World Bank.

UCW is guided by the Roadmap adopted at The Hague Global Child Labour Conference 2010.

The Roadmap calls for effective partnership across the UN system to address child labour, and for mainstreaming child labour into policy and development frameworks.

The Roadmap also calls for improved knowledge sharing and for developing further methodologies and capacity to conduct research on child labour.

UCW research activities are designed to inform policies that impact upon the lives of child labourers in countries where they are prominent.
 
Research efforts help provide a common understanding of child labour, and a common basis for action against it.

UCW research extends to a variety of policy issues associated with child labour, including education, youth employment and migration.

For further information on the UCW Programme, see the Programme information pamphlet and the newsletter.

We present a simple model to describe the potential channels through which the promotion of women's productive capacity may affect children's participation in school and work. Based on a cluster-randomized trial, we examine how a productive intervention tar...

Pathways to work in the developing world: An analysis of young persons’ transition from school to the workplace
Moving from education into the world of work is a crucial phase in youth lives. There is ample evidence that initial difficulties in this process might have long lasting consequences. The scarcity of information about middle and low income countries has especially hampered research in this area. This paper contributes to fill this gap by analysing the School to Work Transition Surveys carried out by the ILO in 28 low and middle income countries in 2012 and 2013. We use hazard models to estima...

Entender el trabajo infantil y el empleo juvenil en Honduras

La mayor parte de los adolescentes y jóvenes ocupados con edad para trabajar se hallan atrapados en empleos informales con pocas perspectivas para el desarrollo profesional y para superar la pobreza y las situaciones...

Measuring Children’s Work in South Asia
The Report is based on recent information from national household surveys in seven of the eight South Asian countries (i.e. Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, the Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka), and provides an overview of the nature and extent of child labour, children’s employment and educational status, at both the South Asian regional level and in each of the seven countries. For Afghanistan, a brief profile of child labour in the country has been compiled from various studies. Gender di...
