Labour market conditions are increasingly becoming central to international development policy and practice. In response, The Australian APEC Study Centre at RMIT University will host a workshop on Understanding Child Labour in Agriculture on 8th – 9th April 2019. The workshop will be held at RMIT’s Melbourne Campus in the heart of the Melbourne CBD.

The aim of the workshop is to highlight existing and new evidence on the social and economic costs and benefits of child labour in the agricultural sector (primary industries) of developing countries.

We invite experts from academia, government and non-government organisations. We are interested in perspectives from economics, political science, sociology, law, anthropology and psychology.
