Drawing on material from across the world, this book reviews issues relating to child slavery in a strategic way. It traces the history of the concept of slavery and the first attempts at abolition through to the range of conventions and protocols that emerged during the twentieth century. The book also examines the legal frameworks relating to child labour and child trafficking, and looks at child domestic labour in a wide range of countries, including Peru, India, Togo, Turkey, Tanzania, and the Philippines. The experience of the United Kingdom is also considered, and the issue of trafficking is analysed through the lens of a human rights approach. The book concludes with a Resources section that hopes to provide pointers to readers wanting to know more, or to become engaged in campaigns and lobbying around the issue of child slavery.
