This article examines the relationship between migrants’ remittances and the prevalenceof child labor by using a large sample of developing countries. In particular, we investigatewhether the inflows of remittances help to offset the effects of financial constraints and incomeshocks on the prevalence of child labor. Starting from a simple theoretical model, thenbased on a sample of 97 developing countries of which 31 are African observed over theperiod 1998-2002, we show that remittances reduce significantly child labor in developingcountries characterized by weak financial systems and by strong income instability. Theseresults were robust even after taking into account the potential endogeneity of remittancesand financial development in the regressions. Policy recommendations for specific strategiesto facilitate receipt of remittances by households are more than ever appropriate for a regionlike Sub-Saharan Africa, which currently receives a small fraction of these funds comparedto other developing countries, and where the prevalence of child labor is still a serious issue.
