Incidences and determinants of child and forced labor and impact of alleviation policies: recent evidence from Côte d’Ivoire, Brazil, and France
This session will share empirical evidence on child and forced labor from three countries: Côte d’Ivoire, Brazil and France. First, Samuel will share some recent data on the incidence of child labor during the COVID pandemic in Côte d’Ivoire. He will also discuss precipitating factors of child labor and schooling outcomes in the country. Second, Robson will provide evidence on the impact of government and non-governmental interventions in curbing forced labor exploitation in Brazilian municipalities. He will also provide suggestive evidence on the impact of these interventions on formal labor markets. Third, Charline will highlight how gender inequality and gender power relations are embedded within the economy of the farming sector in southern France in a way that further intensifies and multiplies the vulnerability of migrant women coercion and forced labour.
