It seems self-evident that children have to be removed from forced and bonded labour, armed
conflict, prostitution and pornography, and illicit and criminal activities, and prevented from being
trafficked, sold and bought like slaves. The time-bound programmes of the ILO/IPEC, presently
initiated in a few countries (ie. Nepal, El Salvador and Tanzania) have concentrated on these
forms of exploitation.
In terms of hazardous and unacceptable exposure to children, many forms of work-related
conditions might be seen to border on these worst forms of child labour and some children's
work in the home or with extended family, in the agricultural informal sector, in the armed forces,
or on the street, only differ to a degree from what is defined in the ILO Convention 182.
