in A Commentary on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 33: Protection from Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances


The 20 years of the CRC have also been a period of dynamic change in international action against child labour; increased international attention on the issue during the 1990s – especially from the children's rights perspective – has brought new developments both in technical cooperation and in international standard-setting. The CRC and its two protocols on the one hand, and the ILO child labour Conventions on the other are complementing each other. This article will look back on the process that led to the adoption of ILO C182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labour as well as its 10 years in force, as an integral part of the progress in children's rights. It is hoped to contribute in taking stock of experience and clarifying what remains to be done with the specific international goal of eliminating the worst forms of child labour by 2016.
