The International Journal of Children’s Rights 5: 123–127, 1997. 123 c 1997 Kluwer Law International. Printed in the Netherlands. PARCTICE AND IMPLEMENTATION Eliminating the worst forms of child labour – a new international standard JONATHAN BLAGBROUGH Child Labour Officer, Anti-Slavery International “Child labour is simply the single most important source of child exploitation and child abuse in the world today and there is an emerging consensus that the world community has the duty and the obligation to combat especially those intolerable forms of child labour that still persist in much of industry, agriculture and services and in conditions of bondage and serfdom”. “Child labour – targeting the intolerable”, ILO, 1996 Child labour is currently receiving unprecedented attention at the international level. Concern about the commercial exploitation of children is no longer simply confined to organisations with mandates to protect children such as the International Labour Organization (ILO), UNICEF and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), but in the last few years has become an issue of wider public attention. This has occurred in large part because there has been a spotlight on trade between rich and poor nations and in particular a growing concern for the welfare of children and adults
