Facuty Seminar - Mohammad (Abbas) Ali

Join Dr. Ali as he presents "Child labor as a complex human rights phenoneonon: A case study in Pakistan's brick-making industry." His research study examines the phenomenon of child labor in conditions where child labor is hazardous, unpaid family work, and exists in local industries.

The overriding purpose of his study is to develop theoretical generalizations that may help comprehend the causes of hidden hazardous child labor in similar conditions eventually leading to effective steps in eradicating or controlling it.

Dr. Ali and his research partners consider child labor as a basic human rights issue and, hence, investigate it as a complex social phenomenon by merging two academic perspectives, i.e., the subaltern tradition in history, and the economic theories of entitlement; capability and function.
