Abstract

Child work in England and Wales has been a well-researched topic from a historical perspective, but increasingly side-lined in socio-legal scholarship. This work aims to bring back this topic to the legal debate, by considering the relevant legal framework and related international and EU instruments, the experiences of working children in England and Wales, and the legal enforcement of the current standards by public authorities. Priorities for the future are also highlighted, with the ultimate intention of prompting greater monitoring and empirical research in this field.
