Abstract

This working paper analyzes child labour and education challenges among indigenous and tribal peoples. A number of project and policy approaches are assessed, followed by a list of recommendations for action. The author describes common forms of social exclusion such as discrimination and cultural marginalization, and argues that current child labour and education initiatives tend to “forget” indigenous concerns and priorities unless safeguard mechanisms are included to ensure indigenous-driven decision-making.
