Child labour is a contested issue globally. I want to call the attention of the CHIFA community to an editorial I have written on the subject for Acta Paediatrica. It links, e.g., the global discourse on child labour to my own research in Guinea-Bissau and Iceland. See https://doi.org/10.1111/apa.16347 <https://doi.org/10.1111/apa.16347>
