Results from qualitative research on the motivation, perceptions, and experiences of female child labour monitoring agents in Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.

This study aims to answer the following questions:

  • Why are women more effective than men at identifying child labour cases?
  • What special qualities do they bring to the job? What benefits do women get from doing this job?
  • Why are there so few females doing this job, and what can be done to recruit and retain more female monitors?

The study also contains recommendations on a set of measures which have been piloted successfully in two cooperatives in Côte d’Ivoire to achieve a better gender balance within the team of CLMRS agents.
