Child labour and education in Bangladesh: evidence and policy recommendations

This publication aims to capture the findings of a research analysis on child labour and education commissioned by the ILO in cooperation with UNICEF and UNESCO on annual World Day Against Child Labour in 2008 which carried the theme “Education – the right response to child labour”. It therefore aims to present i) an understanding of the linkages between child labour and education, by examining the educational, household and sociocultural determinants that act as constraints or incentives in the decision between labour and education; and ii) an overview of relevant mainstream, specific project and non-formal educational responses.
