Childhood and Youth

This volume, replete with contributions from world-renowned children’s rights academics and practitioners, argues that the current drive to eliminate all forms of child work often goes against the best interests and rights of the children supposedly being 'protected'.

This happens because what is proposed is politically disengaged, fails to tackle the underlying causes of children’s insecurities, and lacks a thorough understanding of the social, cultural, and economic circumstances surrounding young people’s work.

Combined, the authors featured in this book advocate for an approach to securing child and youth welfare that is more nuanced, context specific, non-dogmatic, politically engaged, and takes young people’s own accounts seriously.
