Seminar: Child employment and child labour

To which extent European regulation achieves an appropriate balance between child protection and child autonomy?

Eurochild, the European Children’s Rights Unit (University of Liverpool) and the Department of Politics and International Relations (University of Southampton) have organised the seminar "Child employment and child labour", the sixth of the series "European Responses to Global Children’s Rights Issues: Exchanging Knowledge and Building Capacity" (2014-2015).

This seminar will set out the definitional/legal boundaries between child labour and child employment and consider the extent to which European regulation of such issues achieves an appropriate balance between child protection and child autonomy. Particular reference will be made to European initiatives to regulate and raise awareness of the importation and sale of products generated by child labour.
