Child labor in Afghanistan
Afghanistan is located in Asia
Definition of child labor
According to Dictionary.com, Child Labor means, The gainful employment of children below an age determined by law or custom.
In 2013, Afghanistan made a moderate advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The Government of Afghanistan announced the adoption of a list of 29 jobs/working conditions prohibited for children. The National Directorate of Security's (NDS) anti-trafficking in persons/smuggling unit hired 37 new personnel for provincial offices, almost doubling the personnel already in place. The Government's Ministry of Interior (MOI) and Ministry of Defense issued directives to prevent the recruitment and sexual abuse of children by the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF) and began installing the Afghan Human Resources Information Management System (AHRIMS), which will include information on the age of every member of the ANSF. The Government also began participating in a project to combat child labor in the carpet sector. However, children in Afghanistan continue to engage in child labor, including in agriculture, and the worst forms of child labor in the forced production of bricks. Children also continued to be recruited and used for military purposes by non-state groups, as well as by state groups including the Afghan National Police (ANP) and the Afghan Local Police (ALP). The Government does not have a coordinating mechanism to address child labor, sufficient inspectors to enforce child labor laws, or programs to eliminate child labor in sectors where it is prevalent.
Child labor Index
Child labor, as defined by the International Labor Organization, is “work that deprives children of their childhood, their potential and their dignity, and that is harmful to physical and mental development.” The persistence of child labor is one of the biggest obstacles to human rights globally.
Companies that use Child Labor
Afghanistan has a barely functioning social welfare system and the concept of social work is relatively new. It is still a country with tribes who have a lot of influence in local laws and the interpretation and implementation of them. Theirs is a conservative culture and they are very protective of their children – particularly the girls. But when girls come into conflict with these laws they are often accused of committing so-called ‘honer crimes’. These can include running away from home or refusing an arranged marriage.
