Socio-Economic Profile of Child Labour

B.S. Yadav (Author) Humayun Masood (Author)
Synopsis Children are the most important assets of the society and future of a nation depends upon how the children are educated and trained and how their mental and physical development is taken care of. The problem of child labour is a global phenomenon and it exists in almost all the countries of the world, the difference, if any is only of degree or form. It is very saddening to note that India is also one of the nations in the world, which has the unique distinction of being a large employer of child labour. Child labour is both an economic and social problem. The prevalence of child labour is  bolt on the conscience of society. It is not only harmful for the present generation but also for the posterity. The problem of child labour is such that it can hardly be legislated away as its roots lie in abject poverty and backwardness of the society. While removal of poverty and illiteracy, increase in public awareness, socio-economic development, strong political will active participation of media, provision of adequate welfare services and legislation and acts of ratification are important to solve the problem of child labour, yet the future of children would not be secured unless their rights are clearly identified, redefined and restored. This comprehensive, educative and informative book is concerned with all the major issues relating to child labour such as meaning and magnitude of child labour, consequences and causes of child labour, their socio-economic conditions, child labour laws and legislation and valuable suggestions and policy measures for eradication of child labour. It is expected that this book will be very useful and extend considerable help and knowledge to policy makers, academicians, students of social sciences, judges and researchers interested in studying the growing problems of child labour.
