Policy brief

Combating child labour through education in Indonesia - A policy brief

Over the past ten years Indonesia has made major progress in reducing the numbers of children in child labour. It has done so primarily by expanding education provision and enabling more children to attend and stay in school. The progress has been supported by the implementation of major social protection programmes providing support to poor families. However there remains a problem of child labour. This policy brief uses information from a recent study to suggest steps which could be taken to better address child labour through education policies and programmes.
