Following the Commission's 2010 Staff Working Document "Combating Child Labour", the Council invited the Commission to study and report on the worst forms of child labour and trade, taking into account international experience and the views of competent international organizations. The Commission services are thus preparing a Staff Working Document in response to that request. The paper will describe the state of play, international experience and current EU tools.

The purpose of the meeting is to have an exchange of views with civil society on this issue.
