The best workers are NOT children

The Centre’s training activity on child labour cited in report of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children to the 68th session of the UN General Assembly

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children, Ms. Marta Santos Pais, in her annual report to the UN General Assembly and the Human Rights Council on the activities undertaken in the fulfilment of her mandate, mentioned an ITC ILO course jointly undertaken with her Office, the South Asia Initiative to End Violence Against Children (SAIEVAC) and the ILO Decent Work Team for South Asia in Turin in June this year.

The workshop on  “The Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Labour Organization’s Child Labour Conventions:  towards greater coherence in reporting and action” was cited in her report as an important initiative to address  international human rights and labour standards as these relate to the protection of children from violence in South Asia.
