ABOUT US

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.

Through a variety of research activities, the UCW Programme supports the partner agencies in improving statistical information on the child labour phenomenon in its various dimensions – its nature and extent, its causes and consequences, and what policy approaches are most effective in addressing it.

The Programme also supports efforts to improve understanding of links between child labour and related issues such as education, youth employment and migration.

The Programme makes use of its inter-agency configuration and technical orientation to act as a platform for research cooperation, policy dialogue, partnership building and knowledge exchange in child labour and related policy areas.

UCW places particular emphasis on policy-oriented research and on using this research for promoting informed responses to child labour.

The Programme is comprised of five core components as depicted in the figure below.

Specific activities undertaken under each are described in the annual programme progress report. Future research priorities are outlined in this note.
