Event description

Description

Labour market conditions are increasingly becoming central to international development policy and practice. In response, The Australian APEC Study Centre at RMIT University will host an invite-only workshop on Understanding Child Labour in Agriculture on 8th – 9th April 2019. To be selected to attend, please submit an abstract for a paper for presentation at the workshop. Only successful paper authors will be invited to attend the workshop.

The aim of the workshop is to highlight existing and new evidence on the social and economic costs and benefits of child labour in the agricultural sector (primary industries) of developing countries.

We invite experts from academia, government and non-government organisations in this field to submit papers for presentation at the workshop. We are interested in perspectives from economics, political science, sociology, law, anthropology and psychology. Only successful paper authors will be invited to attend the workshop.

Please send an extended abstract or preferably a working paper by January 11th, 2019 to Associate Professor Alberto Posso (alberto.posso@rmit.edu.au).

Successful papers will be announced by January 31st, 2019. Selected papers will form part of a proposal for an edited volume with a major international publisher.

Conference participants are expected to serve as discussants at the workshop. There is no registration fee. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer financial assistance to participants. Upon acceptance, you will be asked to book your travel and accommodation independently. Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea will be provided during the workshop. A welcome dinner will be held on the evening of the 8th April.

If you have any further questions about the workshop, please e-mail info@apec.org.au.
