Abstract

The study assessed the law goverginging child labour in Uganda/ the study found out that Child labour is a common occurrence in Uganda and over e 2. 7 million children engage in Child labour The study concluded that there is a serious gap between the perception of individuals and communities regarding child labour and government policies and programmes as demonstrated by the ratification of the international conventions and national legislation. Moreove"' child labour is largely informal taking place in the context of domestic work; it is not viewed negatively and is largely out of reach of the authorities. The study recommended that there is need to meaningfully step up advocacy for resources for this cause at internationa~ national and sub-national levels. This essentially requires that the petitioning and advocacy for the children's cause be brought to the political and corporate agenda of the controllers of resource allocation political leaders/ legislators/ other policy-makers or advisors at all levels. Since tenacious poverty is a major cause of harmful child labour including slave~ prostitution/ forced labou"' bonded labour, hazardous work and even participation in armed forces and armed conflict poverty reduction should continue to be a top-order priority at all levels of promotion of development and resources allocation. Measures that can address income poverty through elimination of capital and product market constraints would hefp the children's cause both in the short medium and long terms.
