ABSTRACT

This study focuses on children left behind by their parent(s) working overseas and how their rights are addressed in the absence of one or both parents. The study uses proxy measures to examine the effects of parental migration in satisfying the rights of left-behind children. The study finds that while children of migrants are able to join academic organizations and extra-curricular activities, an overwhelming majority of these children are not protected against economic shocks.
