At what age?...are school-children employed, married and taken to court?
by Angela Melchiorre, Ed Atkins in 2013
SummaryRTE's 2011 report analyses the legal minimum ages across 187 countries, focusing on four key areas - completing compulsory education, entering employment, getting married and being accorded criminal responsibility. At What Age? draws on 18 years of reporting under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and raises questions regarding the cross-section of these issues and their affect on the right to education.
