dc.description.abstractThe international community's overwhelming support for the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child of 1990 and the International Labour Organisation's Convention concerning the Prohibition and Immediate Action for the Elimination of the Worst Forms of Child Labour of 1999, implies a high degree of international concern for the welfare of the child. This backing is based on an assumption that the institutionalisation of children's rights and the abolition of child labour at a global level will result in the improvement of the lives of all children. Despite this display of concern, there are considerable differences between the North and the South on the child rearing methods and attitudes towards the work of children. With this in mind, can a world that is so diverse socially and culturally effectively implement the international law on child labour? This research therefore set out to examine the efficacy and appropriateness of the universal standards on child labour in the context of the indigenous societies of Lesotho, Zimbabwe and South Africa.en_ZA
