PDF version

Abstract

This paper seeks to determine if child labour laws as well as the legal institutions that are entrusted with the mandate of curbing the vice are effective in eradicating the practice of child labour which in turn ensures children’s enjoyment of their right to education. The study not only takes into account the legal requirements embodied in the national laws in the eradication of child labour and related issues ratified by Kenya and the way they have impacted in the country in influencing school attendance by school going children. Taking account of the legal institutions into the study is important as the laws that are made need to be enforced by such bodies to determine their effectiveness.This paper seeks to determine if child labour laws as well as the legal institutions that are entrusted with the mandate of curbing the vice are effective in eradicating the practice of child labour which in turn ensures children’s enjoyment of their right to education.
