  2. Syrian Child Labour in Jordan

    25 March 2014

    The ILO response plan to the Syrian refugee crisis in Jordan has identified child labour as a priority. It is estimated there are currently over 580,000 registered Syrian refugees living in Jordan. While around 160,000 refugees live in designated camps, the remaining refugee population has found shelter in host communities in rural and urban areas across Jordan. Many Syrian children are at risk of falling into the trap of child labour - particularly its worst forms. Already, the Jordanian Government says that child labour has doubled nationwide - to 60,000 - since the refugee influx began in 2011.
