This study argues that laws and policies developed to help protect and prevent child domestic labour cannot be developed in isolation from other laws that impact child domestic labour. The paper analyses the need for a holistic approach to lawmaking in this area and sets out a methodology to create a legal policy and programme framework to regulate and protect the domestic child worker.
The paper concludes that having an understanding that gender discrimination is a leading cause of child domestic labour is critical to the protection of child workers as well as for the prevention and elimination of child domestic labour.
