ILO-IPEC Interregional Workshop on child domestic labour and trade unions: Report, Geneva, 1 to 3 February, 2006
Research reports, working paper
The Interregional Workshop on Child Domestic Labour and Trade Unions was organized within the context of two key projects: the “Prevention and elimination of exploitative child domestic work through education and training” funded by the Government of Netherlands and the child labour component of the ILO-government of Norway Framework Agreement.
In view of the experience of trade unions in diff erent parts of the world in tackling the issue of child domestic labour, it was considered that it would be timely to organize an interregional consultation of trade unions active in this fi eld. The objective was to examine the role of workers’ organizations in the elimination and prevention of child domestic labour, to identify specifi c strategies which workers’ organizations would be particularly well-equipped to undertake and to contribute to the elaboration of an ILO-IPEC manual for trade unions on child domestic labour.
