|Title:||Tackling the Rise of Child labour in Europe: Homework for the European Court of Human Rights||Authors:||Egan, Suzanne||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/7346||Date:||Jul-2015||Abstract:||The phenomenon of child labour is on the rise in Europe in the wake of the economic crisis. Specific action in tackling this practice faces a range of challenges including the often hidden nature of the work, cultural attitudes and gendered constructions of the role of children especially in domestic settings. This article explores the range of international standards and efforts made by numerous human rights tribunals aimed at combating the practice, with particular emphasis on the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights. It concludes that the Court has drawn erratically on its standard methodologies (including the comparative technique) in interpreting Article 4 of the ECHR, thus providing limited guidance to European States in getting to grips with child labour.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Cambridge University Press||Copyright (published version):||2015 British Institute of International and Comparative Law||Keywords:||Child labour;European Convention on Human Rights;Forced labour;International Human Rights;International Labour Organisation;Servitude;Slavery||DOI:||10.1017/S0020589315000172||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
