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.

Le double défi du travail des enfants et de la marginalisation scolaire dans la région de la CEDEAO

L’OIT et UCW ont produit le présent Rapport afin de faciliter la transposition de ces plans en actions concrètes. Son but premier est de constituer la base factuelle nécessaire à la conception et au ciblage des interventions spécifiques dirigées contre le travail des enfants. Il réunit ainsi les informations disponibles les plus récentes tirées de diverses enquêtes nationales s...

Pathways to work: an analysis of 28 School to Work Transition Surveys
Despite the multitude of studies, there is relatively little evidence on the process that leads young individuals in low and middle-income countries to acquire and possibly retain jobs, and especially quality jobs. The seminar presente an analysis of the transition paths from school to work of youth in a sample of 28 countries for which we have novel and yet unexploited data, the ILO School to Work Transition Surveys. These data are the result of an unprecedented effort by the ILO, which, f...

Revisiting the impact of Oportunidades on children's activity in Mexico. Evidence from nationally representative data: 2000-2010
Existing, largely experimental, evidence on Progresa/Oportunidades - one of the largest conditional cash transfers programmes in the world - finds little discernible impact of the programme on child labour in rural areas, close to programme inception. We use nationally representative data on 2.5 million children age 12 to 17 from the ENE/ENOE labour force surveys between 2000 and 2010 together with administrative data on programme take-up by municipality to revisit this evidence. Although incre...

The impact of Oportunidades on school participation and child labour
This paper attempts to shed new light on the impact of Oportunidades on the way children combine work and school. We find that Oportunidades strongly increased the probability of being “in school only” (i.e. in school but not in work). The program succeeded not only in encouraging children who would otherwise have dropped out to stay in school, but also in encouraging a substantial share of the children who would otherwise have continued working without attending school to re-enroll. We also fi...
