This project investigates the relationship between education and child labour in the context of the implementation of the Programme Bolsa Escola Municipal in Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais, Brazil). The project assesses different impacts that the conditional cash transfer may have in improving school access and school performance and in the potential reduction of child labour, both within and outside the family unit. The project combines quantitative and qualitative analyses based on data obtained from an intensive fieldwork carried out from 2004 to 2006.
