Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Role of International Law in the Elimination of Child Labor contains a list of reference books and material. As the Industrial Revolution emerged, it became a policy in the United Kingdom that poor children should work, even the very young. The use of children, initially those without family, but later children in families, was widespread in early factories. The International Labor Organization (ILO) was the first international organization to adopt binding rules on child labor. Amongst its earliest conventions was C 5 of 1919 concerning child labor in industrial employment.
