Child Labor and Forced Labor Reports


2022 Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor:

Moderate Advancement

In 2022, Tunisia made moderate advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. In March 2022, the government adopted a guide for labor inspectors when they encounter child labor. It also launched a digital platform to improve coordination among agencies who respond to child abuse, including child labor, and opened two new schools to help students who had dropped out of school reintegrate back into education or job skills training. However, children in Tunisia are subjected to the worst forms of child labor, including in forced labor in domestic work and begging. Children also perform dangerous tasks in street work. The budget for staffing and logistics, such as for fuel and transportation, is inadequate to carry out inspections, especially in remote areas of the country. In addition, the government was unable to provide complete data on its law enforcement efforts due to delays in the digitization of court records.
