Coordinator: To be announced
Extended deadline: 1 February
Childhoods 2005 has received a broad range of abstracts related to the topic of
Child Labor. Due to this interest it seems appropriate to organize a separate
Child Labor Session during the conference. However, the abstracts received so
far are thematically very different. In order to put together interesting and
coherent session modules we have had to organize the submitted abstracts under
some selected module topics.
TO ACCOMMODATE THESE NEW ARRANGEMENT, WE CALL FOR FURTHER CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THIS SESSION AND EXTEND THE DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS TO FEBRUARY 1.
We tentatively propose 8 two-hour modules, and will, depending on quality of the
incoming abstracts, plan to organize between 4 and 6 of these:
1. Introduction and Situation Overview
2. The “Worst Forms” of Child Labor (ILO 182)
3. Children's Right to a Voice on Child Labor: but how much influence is it
reasonable that working children get on child labor issues?
4. Children, children's capabilities and the labor situation
5. Child Labor, AIDS and Orphanhood: myths and research findings
6. Child labor in the Export Sectors
7. From Research to Project and Policy Design: how can/do research findings
on child labor appropriately come to influence on the policy and programming of
government, donors, NGOs and local organizations?
8. Child Labor Migration or Trafficking: what difference is there? (This
module is meant to work as a bridge into the trafficking session that starts
In order to get an interesting discussion, we encourage you to make your point
of view/expected results clearly stated and also indicate how it relates to
ongoing research/present discussion. In all new and revised abstracts it would
also be a plus if method is specified.

requirements for an abstract and
