Child labour: is international activism the solution or the problem?


Doepke, Matthias; Zilibotti, Fabrizio (2009). Child labour: is international activism the solution or the problem? Vox:online.

Abstract

Through actions like product boycotts or imposing international labour standards, governments and consumer groups in rich countries put pressure on poor countries to discourage the use of child labour. But the child-labour problem in developing countries shows no sign of abating. Our research suggests that international activism may be partially to blame, because it can thwart regulation of child labour within developing countries.
