New book: Children's Work and Labour in East Africa
15 May 2015
Children's Work and Labour in East Africa brings together contributions by academics and practitioners interested in strengthening the role of research in improving policies relating to children and poverty in the region. This edited collection presents evidence from working children's lives and perspectives in cases from Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya and Sudan, spanning a variety of types of children's work, from agriculture to mining to petty trade, paid and unpaid work, inside and outside household contexts. Examples speak to experiences of child labour to discern best practices that might be applied more broadly including meaningful ways for involving children in policy processes. The book shows how children's lives have changed with increases in paid and domestic work in addition to the demands of schooling. The book will appeal to both academics and practitioners interested in promoting the well being of working children in ensuring that policies relating to children are firmly based on evidence.
