Abstract #314
Child Labour and Resilience in the Perspective of Families with Work History
Presenter: Aline Mantovani
Work is a social, cultural, historical and political phenomenon that affects children and adolescents worldwide and develops employees in different meanings, sometimes positive, sometimes negative. Therefore, this study aims to draw some reflections on resilience from the perspective of adults who had an early involvement in labor activities, seeking to understand their life histories and social mechanisms that produce evaluative discourse and/or critical of the forms of work developed as children and/or adolescents. Such a problem has been addressed through the use of questionnaires, interviews and photographs from the four research participants and presented from a historical analysis of the emergence of child labor, national and international legal provisions and the different points of view regarding their families characterization in our society. The results point to the multiplicity of meanings attributed to child labor, coming by risk factors related to schooling and health care and/or protection related to social, emotional, and economic development. Cultural and community aspects observed in the data collected in support for understanding the development and demonstration of resilience in the lives of individuals.
