The State of the World's Children 1997: Focus on Child Labour

Each year, The State of the World's Children closely examines a key issue affecting children. The 1997 report focuses on the controversial and emotional, as well as complex and challenging, issue of child labour. It asserts that thoughtful and comprehensive attempts at solutions must be guided by the best interests of the child and the Convention on the Rights of the Child. The report urges an immediate end to hazardous and exploitative child labour and advocates urgent support for education so that children may acquire knowledge and skills to improve their lives.
