A Future Without Child Labour shows how the abolition of child labor has become a global cause for the new millennium. It explores the ever-changing manifestations of child labor throughout the world, and how girls and boys are affected differently, it presents new data on the scale of this stubborn problem, and it sheds new light on its complex, interlinked causes. It also charts the growth of a global movement against child labor, reviewing three various types of action being taken by the ILO, its tripartite constituents (governments, employers? and workers? organizations) and other actors at international, national and local levels. In addition, the report offers proposals for a three-pillar approach to strengthen the action of the ILO in this field, building upon a wealth of experience gained by the International Program for the Elimination of Child Labor (IPEC) in the decade since its establishment.
