Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas)
2021 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Minimal Advancement – Efforts Made but Continued Practice that Delayed Advancement

Although research found no evidence that child labor exists in the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas), in 2021, the government made minimal advancement in efforts to prevent the worst forms of child labor. During the reporting period, the Safeguarding Children’s Board met quarterly and hosted trainings on safeguarding children, including understanding child sexual exploitation. However, the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) are assessed as having made only minimal advancement because it continued to implement a practice that delays advancement to prevent child labor. There is no functioning labor inspectorate in the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) to enforce labor laws. Labor inspections are a key tool for identifying child labor violations, and their absence makes children more vulnerable to the worst forms of child labor. In addition, the minimum ages for work and for hazardous work do not meet international standards, and the law does not prohibit adults from using, procuring, and offering a child for the production and trafficking of drugs.
