Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms that are mentioned in the book The Role of International Law in the Elimination of Child Labor. The book offers a contribution to current debates over child labor. It presents child labor as a problem to which various branches of international law have made a response. The decline of child labor only really began in the latter part of the 19th century, and it took the better part of a century to accomplish between initial protests to practical disappearance. 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. It adopted three conventions on child labor in 1920 and 1921 and four in the 1930s.
