Abstract

We presented a theory that attempts to explain the stylized fact of the persistence of child labor in developing countries. Our model shows the importance of the role of institutions in explaining the level of education of these countries. These institutions can be formal as the quality of educational governance or informal social norms as incentives for more education. Our main result showed the existence of a strategic complementarity between the formal institution and informal institution which may create a poverty trap.In particular our theoretical model is a conceptual framework for analyzing our preliminary studies in progress on the determinants of child labor in Morocco.
