This volume attempts to highlight the structural factors in capitalist societies that have made such exploitation possible, and to place the issue of child labour in a theoretical framework relating to capitalist modes of production and the need for the generation of surplus for capital accumulation. Extremely exploitative labour processes bring out the supply and demand factors of child labour.
The persistence of child labour in an era of high growth and high unemployment levels amongst adult men and women points to an economic system based heavily on exploitative labour relations. As we move further into the twenty-first century, the existence of child labour in the world is a reality which must be faced.
It is within this context that the present volume takes into consideration the changing global economic conditions and focuses on issues and strategies for the eradication of child labour. *(less)

By almost any indicator of corruption, the performance of the South Asian countries has been poor. Corrupt practices in the region have a long history, and were sustained during British colonial rule.
