Child labour in Bhutan : the challenges of implementing child rights in Bhutan
AuthorChhetri, Kishore Kumar
This dissertation attempts to contextualize the practice of child labour in Bhutan by examining various socio-economic and cultural aspects. By reviewing the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, this dissertation looks into the policies, Acts and strategies adopted by the Royal Government of Bhutan in reducing child labour. It describes various characteristics of child labour in Bhutan. It also provides an analysis of domestic child labour in the country. The study is mostly based on pragmatic observations and explanatory narrative approach in which children have expressed their real life experiences while at work. Findings are also based on interviews conducted with other actors from both the government sectors and NGOs who work to promote and protect child rights in Bhutan. Few theoretical assumptions have been considered to understand the underpinning causes of child labour.
