    Four years after the Center for Child Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility (CCR CSR) released its first study on the topic of migrant parent workers in China’s factories, CCR CSR has released a new study that sheds light on their most recent situation, the challenges they face as parent workers and the reasons underpinning their decision to either migrate with or without their children. It also presents strong evidence that links factories and brands’ lack of support towards migrant parents with decreased retention and work satisfaction.

    In the summer of 2016, CCR CSR implemented a Factory Child Friendly Spaces pilot program in five factories in China during the summer school break.

The assessment consisted of baseline surveys, final evaluation surveys and interviews with children, parents and factory staff.

    General comment No. 20 (2016) draws attention to "the powerful case for a focus on adolescents to promote the realization of their rights, strengthen their potential contribution to positive and progressive social transformation and overcome the challenges they face in the transition from childhood to adulthood in an increasingly globalized and complex world." While directed towards states, it is important for the private sector to also engage with these issues, especially since child labour and the violation of young workers' rights is an every day reality for millions of young people across the world.
