Abstract

The Children’s Rights Discourse led by international NGOs, intergovernmental and trade organisations trivialises economic and socio-cultural impetuses, silences direct participation from children and their duty bearers, and disproportionately censors the state. This counteracts its objective to confront child labour in Bangladesh and India by delineating it from its underlying causes
