2016 FINDINGS ON THE WORST FORMS OF CHILD LABOR 1
In 2016, Djibouti made a minimal advancement in efforts to eliminate the worst forms of child labor. The Government passed the Law on the Fight Against Trafficking in Persons and Illicit Smuggling of Migrants, which criminally prohibits domestic and international trafficking and addresses all acts in the trafficking process. However, children in Djibouti perform dangerous tasks in street work. Children also engage in the worst forms of child labor, including in commercial sexual exploitation. In addition, the law neither establishes a minimum age for hazardous work nor fully protects children from all forms of commercial sexual exploitation. Law enforcement efforts were inadequate to prevent and combat child labor, including its worst forms.
