This aspect is totally omitted in so-called ‘objective’ analyses of the ‘problems of child labour’ and policies that degrade children by reducing them to objects of measures, however well meant.             |  1 | Working children’s movements in Africa, Latin America and Asia1 §  the 1980s onwards, social movements and organizations of working children have come into being in various regions of the southern hemisphere.

The degree of influence of the organizations of working children in their own countries varies. They do not amount to a power factor that could directly cause the political and economic elites to take particular decisions. Their role has more of a symbolic nature, and their influence depends to a great extent on whether in their countries there are political structures and a social climate favourable to participatory processes. Whether there are social movements and initiatives continually working to achieve respect for human rights and the realization of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is equally important.

Despite their methodological weakness, the NGOs’ publications contributed to bringing the living conditions of working children to the notice of the aid organizations, governments and research institutions and the general public. 3 In recent years, the studies carried out or commissioned by NGOs have gained considerably in quality. Above all the International Save the Children Alliance (ISCA) has initiated field research in several countries, some of it intensive, which was also methodologically innovative.
