This report assesses the situation of child labour in Kyrgyzstan with respect to international standards on the rights of the child in the field of the right to work and is submitted pursuant to the European Union’s Generalized System of Preferences Plus Programme (GSP+). The main areas of concern are the use of child labour, forced labour, including the worst forms of child labour in the Kyrgyz Republic.

Kyrgyzstan has ratified all of the GSP+ conventions, and laws relating to the rights of the child in the field of the right to work include the Code of the Kyrgyz Republic “On Children”, the Labour Code, the Criminal Code, the Code of Misconduct, the Law On the Prevention and Combating Trafficking in Human Beings.
