    The head of the Strategic Center for Human Rights in Iraq, Fadel Al-Gharawi, confirmed on Monday that child labor is a global phenomenon with its highest rates in low-income countries, noting that more than 200 million children in the world between the ages of 6 and 17 are working in the labor market, males of whom are represented. 80% rate.
    Al-Gharawi said in statements followed by Al-Iqtisad News that, according to the United Nations, child labor is more widespread on the African continent than any other, as the number of working children there reaches 72 million, followed by the Asia-Pacific continent, with 62 million working children, distributed among 11 million child workers in the Americas, which is equivalent to 5% of children, indicating that in Europe and Central Asia, 4% of children work, and in the Arab world the percentage of child labor reaches 3%.
    United Nations statistics indicate that 84 million children (56% of all working children) live in low-income countries.
    Al-Gharawi explained that Iraq ranks fourth in child labor after Yemen, Sudan, and Egypt. In Sudan, the percentage in the age group from 4 to 15 years reaches 12.6%, and it rises to 19.2% in the age group from 15 to 17 years.
    In Yemen, the percentage reaches 13.6% for the age group from 4 to 15 years, and 34.8% for the older group, and this applies to Egypt and Iraq as well. In Egypt, about 1.2% work within the age group from 4 to 15 years, and the percentage rises to 13.5% within Age group: 15 to 17%.

    He stressed that the reasons for the high rates of child labor in Iraq are due to the economic conditions due to low family income, high rates of unemployment, poverty, conflicts that Iraq has experienced, displacement, high rates of domestic violence against children, and a weak system of legal legislation and strategies to protect children’s rights.
    Al-Gharawi added that despite Iraq's ratification of the main basic conventions that protect children from all forms of child labor, which are ILO Convention No. 138 on the minimum age, and ILO Convention No. 182 on the worst forms of child labor, which entered into force two years ago. 1985 and 2001. It is also a signatory to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, but the rates of child labor in Iraq are still high.
    Gharawi called on the government and parliament to expedite the legislation of the child protection law, amend the labor law, and tighten penalties on factory owners who employ children. He also called on the government to create economic opportunities for children, establish a generational fund, and set a percentage for the child until he reaches 18 years. He also called on the government and parliament to consider 12/6 of every National Day to Combat Child Labor.
