World Day against Child Labour

Catherine Ashton, the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the Commission, Vivian Reding, Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship and Vice-President of the Commission, Andris Piebalgs, Commissioner for Development, and Karel De Gucht, Commissioner for Trade, today made a statement in commemoration of the World Day against Child Labour. While the EU announced a number of concrete initiatives last year, we must step up our efforts to combat child labour, in particular its worst forms, and consolidate children’s rights through a comprehensive approach which addresses the root causes of this phenomenon. EU development policy combats the root causes of child labour through targeted educational and poverty reduction programmes, such as the "Stop child labour campaign", ''Education for All Fast Track Initiatives'' and country-specific plans for education.
