Overview for Child Labour in India: Globalization, Power and the Politics of International Children's Rights

India has the largest number of child labourers in the world, and has been the subject of intense media and political campaigns in the North aimed at addressing the abuse of children’s rights. This book explores children’s rights as a site of power and reveals how the rights discourse has been used by international actors, national elites and local NGOs in the child labour debate in India.

While discussing the children’s rights in the contemporary world, the author analyses human rights and power along with insights from postcolonial theorists. He provides empirical accounts of how three Indian NGOs-Bonded Labour Liberation Front, Butterflies and South Asian Coalition on Child Servitude-are using the discourse of children’s rights to challenge child labour practices.

Combining global and local perspectives to arrive at a comprehensive picture, the book locates the struggle for child rights on two fronts: critiquing neo-liberal globalization and challenging rights violations in India.

Contents: Introduction. 1. The politics of human rights. 2. International children’s rights law and child labour. 3. Situating human rights within the context of globalization. 4. Globalization and India: the inner landscape. 5. NGOS, children’s rights and child labour in India: a struggle on two fronts. Conclusion. Bibliography. Index.
