2020 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Moderate Advancement

In 2020, Montenegro made moderate advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The government began enforcing the new Labor Law, which provides specific provisions for the conditions allowing a minor to work, and substantially increased the Labor Inspectorate's budget. In addition, the government opened a new shelter for victims of human trafficking and provided services to nine children, including seven children who were previously in forced begging situations. However, children in Montenegro are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including in forced begging and commercial sexual exploitation, each sometimes as a result of human trafficking. In addition, research found that the scope of programs to address child labor in street work and forced begging is insufficient.
