Because we struggle to survive

Date of publication:  10 Jun 2016 Authors:  Barbara Küppers Antje Ruhmann Publisher:  Terre des hommes Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

On the occasion of the World Day against Child Labour, Tdh released a new study on child labour among refugees of the Syrian conflict.

The study “Because we struggle to survive” sheds light on the problem of child labour, including its worst forms, among refugees from the on-going conflict in Syria and the tremendous spill-over effects in the region.

It presents the overall picture and analyses the push and pull factors for child labour among internally displaced children in Syria and refugee children in neighbouring countries, as well as in the countries they are heading to.
