(p.148) 21 Child Labor and Work
Handbook of International Social Work

Dennis J. Ritchie

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the problem of child labor and efforts to reduce and eliminate it across global, national, and local levels. It then discusses how the holistic, ecosystemic perspective of social work is well suited for analyzing and synthesizing the multifaceted, complex, interrelated aspects (i.e., determinants and consequences) of child labor. Social work needs to increase research and action into the determinants and consequences of child labor throughout the world, because it is indeed a global problem.

Keywords:   social work practice, child labor, child work, global level
