World Day Against Child Labour - 12 June
The World Day Against Child Labour this year will focus particularly on the importance of quality education as a key step in tackling child labour.
Adopted by a Meeting of Experts in November 2013, the Guidelines set out principles for the promotion of decent work for early childhood education (ECE) personnel as a means of ensuring universal access to high-quality ECE services.
This review examines recent debates and developments in child labour and education to help identify a strategic focus for work post-2015.
