Understanding Children’s Harmful Work in African Agriculture: Points of Departure


This paper steps back from dominant discourses around child labour, and examines how a reframing of children’s involvement in African agriculture, from child labour to children’s work, might enhance understanding of the forms, prevalence, drivers, and dynamics of their involvement, and particularly in work that is harmful. Our aim is to open space for new discourses, strategies, and interventions with which children’s harmful work in agriculture might be addressed.
