Abstract

Throughout the world child labour has been an area of lively debate for about a decade with many different viewpoints on the issue. It is argued that in developing countries with poverty, inequality, social norms, credit-land-labour market imperfections, high fertility and unpredictable employment scenario, children are sent to work in most cases by their parents. The inherent factors responsible for this especially the role of poverty is examined in this research note.
