Child Labour Theories and Policies
Furio Rosati ()
No 533, CEIS Research Paper from Tor Vergata University, CEIS
This chapter presents the main theoretical analyses in the area of child labour and their implications in terms of policy design. The discussion is based on the human capital approach and presents a simplified model that allows to frame the most relevant results present in the literature. It also looks at some of the evidence available about the impact of the different interventions implemented and review their effectiveness and limitations. From the policy point of view, the chapter concludes pointing out the need to integrate child labour interventions in broader human capital and poverty reduction policies and to consider “big push” interventions able to move the economy permanently to a low child labour equilibrium.
