Child Labour in Global Society is a critical response to the modern educational regime, compulsory schooling and the 'slavery industry' in a globalizing world; to evolving and exploitative notions of 'slavery'; to definitions of 'slavery' in international law; to approaches to 'educational labour', including in international human rights law; and to cultural, common-sense and professional perspectives on 'slavery' and 'educational labour', in the light of which it is arguable that children's 'slave labour' in modern and modernizing societies is grossly under-estimated and otherwise greatly, if conveniently, misrepresented.
1. Introduction: A Perspective on Child Labour as Slavery 2. Child Labour and Slavery in Modern Society 3. The Education Industry, Compulsory Schooling and Globalization 4. Children’s Educational Labour as Slave Labour 5. Conclusion: The Sociology of Children’s Labour, Schooling and Slavery
