Child labour report 2017 - The Neglected Link: effects of climate change and environmental degradation on child labour

Lisa Myers, Laura Theytaz-Bergman, Eds.: Terre des hommes, (2017)

Over half a billion children are living in areas with extremely high levels of floods and nearly 160 million children live in areas of high or extremely high droughts. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 26% of the annual 6.6 million deaths of children under five are linked to environment-related causes and conditions. Children are also disproportionately affected by pollution, not only in terms of death rates, but also in terms of cognitive and physical development. This report illustrates that environmental causes also have an impact on whether children are pushed to work and on the kind of work they engage in, the conditions of work, exposure to dangerous toxicants and the risk of exploitation. However, the report raises more questions than it answers as it is one of the first reports addressing the question, how environmental degradation and climate change affect the vulnerability of children towards exploitation.

Kinderarbeits-Report 2016

Terre des Hommes, (2016)

Diese Studie liefert einschlägige Informationen aus erster Hand über die Lebenswirklichkeit von syrischen Kindern, die arbeiten müssen: in ihrem Heimatland, in den Nachbarstaaten oder in Europa. Der syrische Bürgerkrieg ist die schlimmste humanitäre Katastrophe unserer Zeit. Hunderttausende Menschen – Erwachsene und Kinder – wurden getötet. Zwei Drittel aller Syrer haben ihr Zuhause und ihre Existenzgrundlage verloren. Millionen Syrer wurden aus ihrem Lebensumfeld gerissen und gezwungen, innerhalb ihres Landes oder in die Nachbarländer zu fliehen. Die enormen Auswirkungen auf andere Länder ziehen internationale Aufmerksamkeit auf sich. Diese richtet sich nicht nur auf die humanitäre Krise in den betroffenen Gebieten und Ländern, sondern auch auf deren wirtschaftliche und soziale Last. Das durch die verschiedenen Konfliktparteien verursachte Blutvergießen hält an, das Leid wird größer. Rund die Hälfte aller syrischen Flüchtlinge und Vertriebenen sind Kinder und Jugendliche: Diese sind doppelt verletzlich – als Kinder und als Flüchtlinge oder Vertriebene.

Child Labour Report 2016

Terre des Hommes, (2016)

“Because we struggle to survive” Child Labour among Refugees of the Syrian Conflict | This study provides pertinent first-hand information on the reality facing Syrian children who are working either in their homeland, the neighbouring countries or elsewhere in Europe. Syria's civil war is the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Hundreds of thousands of people - adults and children alike - have been killed. Two thirds of all Syrians have lost their homes and their livelihoods. Millions of Syrians have been uprooted from their home communities and forced to flee within their country or to neighbouring countries. The consistent spill-over has drawn global attention not just to the humanitarian crisis facing both local communities and national governments but also to the economic and social strain. The bloodshed wreaked by the different parties continues. The suffering deepens. Approximately half of the Syrian refugees and displaced persons are children and young people who suffer from a double-vulnerability: as children and as migrants or refugees.

Child Labour Report 2015: Migrant Child Labour in the Thai Shrimp Industry

Friedel Hütz-Adams/ Südwind-Institut für Ökonomie und Ökumene , Eds.: Terre des Hommes, (2015)

Slavery on fishing vessels, degradation of ecosystems, overfishing, debt bondage, human trafficking and child labour in peeling sheds – the scandals surrounding the Thai fishery and shrimp industries have garnered international censure. Farmed and processed at the cost of extreme exploitation of both people and the planet, Thai shrimp ends up on plates around the world. The former delicacy can now be bought cheaply everywhere. But how high is the price really? And who has to pay it? This report by seeks to remind governments in the countries of production that it is their duty to enforce human rights and living wages, rather than to compete for the favour of large companies to the detriment of people and the environment. It also appeals to consumers and their governments – and to importers – to send a clear message to suppliers in Thailand and elsewhere: If you want to survive on the global market, you need to respect human rights and child rights, and uphold social and environmental standards.

Zwölf Jahre, Sklave - Kinder in Zwangsarbeit

Terre des Hommes; Süd Wind, (2014)

Die Risiken für Kinder, Opfer sexueller Ausbeutung zu werden, haben in den vergangenen Jahren eher zu- als abgenommen. Dies stellte Ende 2013 die Sonderberichterstatterin der Vereinten Nationen zum Thema Prostitution von Kindern fest. Neben Sklaverei ist Kinderprostitution eine der offensichtlich illegalen Formen von Zwangsarbeit, um die es in der Studie von Autorinnen und Autoren des Südwind-Instituts geht, die von Terre des hommes herausgegeben wurde.
