    The Surge In Child Labor: Conventions, Laws, and Challenges

    1 PM EDT

    The recent rise of children at work is due to the increase in inflation and the cost of living, and in the United States, lessening of state protective laws and the use of migrant children. The International Labour Organization indicates there are 160 million children engaged in child labor, working in jobs that deprive them of their childhood and harm their mental and physical development. Some of the worst forms of work involve sexual exploitation.

    The BBC reported a mother forced to put her daughter into sex work to help support the family and survive living costs. In the United States, at least 14 states have rolled back child protection laws, and the NY Times reported that migrant children are employed in brutal work all across the U.S.

    Despite the International Labor Organization's prohibitive child labor laws, the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the U.S. Department of Labor's laws, these practices persist. Our expert panelists will propose possible solutions.

    Speakers:

    • Zama Neff - Executive Director, Children's Rights Division, Human Rights Watch
    • Benjamin Smith - Senior Officer on Child Labor, International Labour Organization
    • Jessica Leinwand - Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel, UNICEF USA
    • Elizabeth Barad (Moderator) - International Law and Gender Consultant
