Child Labour and Trade Liberalization

Sarbajit Chaudhuri () and Manash Gupta ()

The Japanese Economic Review, 2004, vol. 55, issue 2, 201-211

Abstract: The paper analyses the implications of trade liberalization on the incidence of child labour in a two‐sector general equilibrium framework. The supply function of child labour has been derived from the utility‐maximizing behaviour of the working families. The paper finds that the effect of trade liberalization on the incidence of child labour crucially hinges on the relative factor intensities of the two sectors.
