"Çalışan Çocuk - Bağcılar ve Küçükçekmece" Pilot Research
"Prevention of Child Labor Research and Model Development Project" is conducted by İstanbul Bilgi University Child Studies Unit in collaboration with Center for Migration Research in 2017 in Istanbul.
The pilot research, conducted in Bağcılar and Küçükçekme, seeks a comprehensive understanding of the problems a working child encounters. Acknowledging limitations and barriers to research in the regions, we hope that our research will provide useful insights for understanding child labour and guide other researchers working on this subject.
