Uzbekistan: Good intentions and child labour

Written by Stacey Dove

Economic sanctions may be a noble way to show solidarity to some players in the international community but those are rarely successful.

New Eurasia Net reports that it may seem obvious but yet it is exactly what is missing in the debates on the issue of child labour in Uzbekistan. Child labour in Uzbekistan is nothing new. Thousands of children spend months in the open cotton fields under pouring rain and freezing temperatures without any compensation. Some of those children became handicapped for life due to the brutal physical pressure and unbearable living conditions.
