Cash Transfers and Child Labour: An Intriguing Relationship

Cash Transfers and Child Labour: An Intriguing Relationship

Summary

This one-page article considers how conditional cash transfer (CCT) programmes have impacted on child labour. Several evaluations have found that CCT programmes have positive impacts on primary school attendance. Looking at a Brazilian case study, the author argues that the incentive provided by a cash transfer may not be sufficient to reduce child labour. Indeed CCT programmes could indirectly stimulate child labour instead of reduce it.
