Chapter Summary

Technical assistance is recognized in International Labor Organization (ILO) C 182 (Article 8) and ILO R 190 (Articles 11 and 16). Regulation of child labor outside the context of international treaty implementation has developed as well, in the context of the growing field of corporate social responsibility. Early reports from International Program on the Elimination of Child Labor (IPEC) emphasize that not all child work counts as child labor and focus on harmful forms of work. These reports helped to lay the groundwork for the development of ILO C 182 on the worst forms of child labor. One recent development in corporate social responsibility is the emergence of commodity-based agreements between companies. Rather than one company addressing child labor, or other core labor rights issues, a number of companies within a commodity sector have come together to establish common codes, with some remedial measures.
