Child labor and temporary emigration

Gil Epstein () and Nava Kahana

Economics Letters, 2008, vol. 99, issue 3, 545-548

Abstract: We propose to mitigate child labor by encouraging temporary emigration. It emerges that the remittances sent by the emigrating parents might enable not only their children, but also others, to stop working even upon the return of the emigrant parents.
