Chapter Summary

International Labor Organization (ILO) C 182 of 1999 takes the approach of setting priorities in the area of child labor. The main opposition to the prioritization approach of C 182 comes from those who seek to abolish all child labor, arguing that it is in itself harm to children. The International Labor Organization (ILO) sees prioritization as part of a larger strategy, which embraces the International Program on the Elimination of Child Labor (IPEC) and the core conventions of the 1998 Declaration of Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work. The main distinction between C 138 and C 182 is that the former is an abolitionist convention that seeks to eliminate all work by children below school-leaving age, whereas the latter implicitly distinguishes between permissible and impermissible forms of child work.
