The Understanding Children’s Work (UCW) programme is an inter-agency research cooperation initiative involving the International Labour Organisation (ILO), UNICEF and the World Bank.

UCW is guided by the Roadmap adopted at The Hague Global Child Labour Conference 2010.

The Roadmap calls for effective partnership across the UN system to address child labour, and for mainstreaming child labour into policy and development frameworks.

The Roadmap also calls for improved knowledge sharing and for developing further methodologies and capacity to conduct research on child labour.

UCW research activities are designed to inform policies that impact upon the lives of child labourers in countries where they are prominent.
 
Research efforts help provide a common understanding of child labour, and a common basis for action against it.

UCW research extends to a variety of policy issues associated with child labour, including education, youth employment and migration.

For further information on the UCW Programme, see the Programme information pamphlet and the newsletter.

HIGHLIGHTS

Evolution of the relationship between child labour and education since 2000 Evidence from 19 developing countries
Children’s work is one of the main obstacles to Education for All (EFA). Children’s work harms children's ability to enter and survive in the school system, and makes it more difficult for children to derive educational benefit from schooling once in the system. At the same time, education is a key element in the prevention of children’s work. Understanding the interplay between education and children’s work is therefore critical to achieving both EFA and child labour elimination goals. The qu...

The twin challenges of child labour and youth employment in the Arab States
This Report examines the related issues of child labour and youth marginalisation in the Arab States. It focuses in particular on the non-rich countries and territories covered by the ILO Regional Office for Arab States (i.e., Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, Yemen and the Occupied Palestinian Territory). All are conflict or conflict-affected societies where concerns relating to the well-being of child and youth are acute and where better information to inform policy is needed. All are also societies tha...

Revisiting the impact of Oportunidades on children's activity in Mexico. Evidence from nationally representative data: 2000-2010
Existing, largely experimental, evidence on Progresa/Oportunidades - one of the largest conditional cash transfers programmes in the world - finds little discernible impact of the programme on child labour in rural areas, close to programme inception. We use nationally representative data on 2.5 million children age 12 to 17 from the ENE/ENOE labour force surveys between 2000 and 2010 together with administrative data on programme take-up by municipality to revisit this evidence. Although incre...

Understanding children’s work and youth employment outcomes in Uganda
The report, jointly developed with the Government and the UCW partner agencies, examines the related issues of child labour and youth employment in Uganda. Guided by observed outcomes in terms of schooling, work activities and status in the labour market, the report considers the economic as well as the social determinants of child labour and youth employment. The 2011/2012 Uganda Labour Force and Child Activities (NLF&CAS) survey and the 2012/2013 ILO School-to-Work Transition Survey (STWT) a...
