Abstract

Street children in Dhaka are hired by 'mastaans' to carry weapons, sell drugs, collect extortion money, commit political violence and conduct contract killings. While exploring the involvement of street children in organised crime groups Dr Sally Atkinson-Sheppard explains why they are neither victims nor offenders. They are instead 'illicit labourers', doing what they can to survive on the streets.
