Does Globalization Contribute to Decreasing Child Labor Rates?

This study examines the relationship between globalization (from a multidimensional viewpoint) and child labor. No specific a priori relationship was found through an analysis of the impact of globalization on child labor in relation to a country’s level of development. The use of panel data methodology reveals empirical evidence of an inverted U-shaped relationship between globalization and child labor in countries with medium-low and low incomes. The inflection point and the convergence coefficient obtained, describe the nature of the social phenomenon −child labor− in low-income countries.
