9780813548890: Rights and Wrongs of Children's Work (Rutgers Series in Childhood Studies)

Rights and Wrongs of Children's Work, authored by an interdisciplinary team of experts, incorporates recent theoretical advances and experiences to explore the place of labor in children's lives and development.

This groundbreaking book considers international policies governing children's work and the complexity of assessing the various effects of their work. The authors question current child labor policies and interventions, which, even though pursued with the best intentions, too often fail to protect children against harm or promote their access to education and other opportunities for decent futures. They argue for the need to re-think the assumptions that underlie current policies on the basis of empirical evidence, and they recommend new approaches to advance working children's well-being and guarantee their human rights.

Rights and Wrongs of Children's Work
condemns the exploitation and abuse of child workers and supports the right of all children to the best quality, free education that society can afford. At the same time, the authors recognize the value, and sometimes the necessity, of work in growing up, and the reality that a "workless" childhood, without responsibilities, is not good preparation for adult life in any environment.

Review:

"Bourdillon and colleagues analyze the problems, benefits, appropriate interventions, culture, and policies related to children's work with a respect for the individual rights of the children involved. Recommended."
(Choice 2011-08-01)

"While this book is not the first to challenge conventional thinking on children's work, it is comprehensive in its analysis and bold in its call for change."
(Comparative Education Review 2012-02-01)

"In Rights and Wrongs of Children's Work, the authors provide us with a definitive and balanced examination of why it is that the majority of the world's children's work for a living. This is an excellent book, which has clearly been designed to engage both the novice and expert. The clarity of reflective thought in this book is particularly impressive and reassuring."
(Contemporary Sociology 2012-06-01)

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Rights and Wrongs of Children s Work: New Perspectives from Research and Action explores the place of labor in the children s lives and child development. Almost all the world s children work at some time in their lives. Some kinds of work are extremely harmful; other kinds are relatively harmless; still others are beneficial, a positive element in growing up. It is questionable whether current child labor policies and interventions, even though pursued with the best intentions, are succeeding either in protecting children against harm or in promoting their access to education and other opportunities for successful futures. By incorporating recent theoretical advances in childhood studies and in child development, the authors argue for the need to re-think assumptions that underlie current policies on child labor. Rights and Wrongs uses interdisciplinary methods to understand children s work as a component of child development, which cannot be treated independently of children s varied lives. In the first few chapters, well-documented historical cases ranging from contemporary Morocco to 19th century Britain question common assumptions about children s work.The authors examine concrete situations of work and schooling, suggesting that not all paid work outside the home is harmful to children, and that not all unpaid work-not even all work in the family or school-is harmless to children. Later chapters explore ideas of children s independency in the workforce as well as how working as a child can positively contribute to adolescent development. The authors, while remaining sensitive to the abusive nature of some children s work, maintain that a workless childhood free of all responsibilities is not a good preparation for adult life in any society.
