Lange de, A. (2006). GOING TO KOMPIENGA A Study on Child Labour Migration and Trafficking in Burkina Faso's South-Eastern Cotton Sector.

104 p. This report presents empirical evidence derived from interviews with migrating children and their parents, as well as with farmers who employ them. It challenges common assumptions about how and why children leave (or are taken from) home for their labour. It discusses which elements most strongly impair the well-being of a child migrant and it seeks to indicate how the movement of children could be addressed in a way that takes their rights and needs into account. In essence, this report is a case study, as it is built around one particular child migration route in Eastern-Burkina.
