Susan Bissell explores the complex issues around child rights and child employment, on the basis of her two years of research in Dhaka. While not writing in defence of child labour, she argues that child labour elimination must be redressed within the wider context of women's and children's rights. To do otherwise could further violate the human rights of women and children, and confound real attempts to find sustainable solutions.Development (2001) 44, 75–80. doi:10.1057/palgrave.development.1110241
