[show abstract][hide abstract] ABSTRACT: This paper will provide a review of impact evaluations of policies up to 2007 relating to child labor prevention and protection. The aim of this review is to provide a summary of these impact evaluations in an attempt to draw some best practice lessons, but also to assess the state of art in terms of the current use of rigorous impact evaluation and the actual ‘evaluability’ of policies with a direct and/or indirect effect on child labor. The definition of what is considered an impact evaluation in this note will be discussed in the methodological session. The immediate output will be a detailed mapping of policy experience and impact evaluation relating to child labor prevention and protection.
