Literature Review of Child Labour

This comprehensive literature review of child labour summarises  the literature on child time allocation, the types of work children participate in, the impact of work on schooling, health, and externalities associated with child work. It also considers the literature on the determinants of child time allocation (child labour) such as the influence of local labour markets, family interactions, the net return of schooling and poverty. Additionally, the paper discusses evidence on policy options aimed at influencing child labour.
