Abstract

Child slavery in West African cocoa farming is frequently reported, but policymakers and NGOs often misunderstand its drivers, fuelled by the cocoa producers who steer the conversation towards issues of poverty. Michael Odijie examines the ongoing scholarship and highlights the importance of addressing cocoa production processes to reduce child slavery in the region.
