Reports and Publications

ILAB conducts and funds rigorous research using a variety of methods and uses the results to inform the design and implementation of policy and programs. We research worker livelihoods and the violation of worker rights, including the prevalence of child labor and occurrence of forced labor around the world.

We also sponsor qualitative studies, quantitative surveys, impact evaluations, and other research products to study worker livelihoods, the incidences and root causes of child labor and worker rights violations, and the effectiveness of particular policies and projects. These studies advance our understanding of why program strategies work or do not work, identify the most effective policy approaches, provide information to strengthen enforcement efforts, and compile new data on workers and child laborers.
