Household Vulnerability and Child Labour: the Effect of Shocks, Credit Rationing and Insurance

Summary: Building upon the social-risk
management approach, this paper
examines dimensions of household
behaviour that are important for risk
management and reduction of
vulnerability, beyond issues of
consumption. This paper attempts to
assess to what extent risk and
vulnerability factors are relevant for
household decisions concerning
children's school attendance and
labour supply.
