Forskningstema: Sahel og Afrika sør for Sahara

Child labour is rampant in Malawi, and attention has especially been directed at the tobacco-growing sector. Less is known about the situation in other commercial agricultural sectors, as the tea sector, which is another major export sector in the Malawian economy. The objective of this pilot study has been to get an overview of existing information and knowledge on child labour in the tea sector in Malawi and to explore the needs for further research.
