A Rapid Assessment: Child Labour in the Nepalese Carpet Sector
PDF File Size: 753 KB | Download   
Following a number of studies and research projects, the government of Nepal and the ILO/
IPEC identified Nepalese carpet factories as the location of ‘one of the worst forms of child labour’. Their decision was based on definitions recommended in the ILO Convention 182, and Recommendation 190. The evidence provided by previous studies, however, is insufficient to prove whether the work of children in carpet factories is actually ‘one of the worst forms of child labour’. This new Rapid Assessment attempts to fill gaps in existing knowledge, and further explores the relationship between child labour and the wider carpet economy. The study used RA methodology recommended by ILO/UNICEF to investigate the worst forms of child labour over a 3 month period, with the objective of designing strategies to eliminate such child labour.
