Child labour has been changed from a matter of regional concern to a more global concern. By drafting a theoretical and empirical understanding of the fact, this project tries to create a proper understanding of what facets serve to child labour, and what the consequences are. Questions such as, what factors plays a role in the child labour force and how poverty and education can be a meaningful actor in the process are being looked upon on. This project’s main focus is, how the well-being and identity of the child is affected by child labour and what implications increased education and decreased poverty have on child labourers. Based on both new and old literature and findings, it also looks at poverty and education as two separate factors, and later on in the project, it combines the two factors to elaborate on the analysis.
