Webinar in French – Children in service in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic

June 12 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm



Watch the video recording


The COVID-19 health pandemic and the resulting economic shock to the labor market have a huge impact on people’s lives and livelihoods. Unfortunately, children are the first to be victims, especially those in domestic service.

According to some data recorded in 2014, 25% of Haitian children lived separated from their parents and 3,000 of them were homeless. Among children living apart from their families, around 250,000 are in child domestic work. They are subject to discriminatory conditions in their homes and work as servants.

The main objective of this first webinar is to enable judges, magistrates, lawyers, and law students to be made aware of the challenges posed by child labor and to familiarize themselves with the national and international standards relating thereto.

Target audience:

  • Judges
  • Government commissioners
  • Lawyers
  • Law students

The discussion featured:

  • Maguy FLORESTAL (Moderator), Judge at the Court of Appeal of Port-au-Prince and Director of studies of the EMA
  • M. Paul Eddy LACOSTE, Social worker and Vice-Dean of Academic Affairs at the Faculty of Human Sciences
  • M. Emmanuel LACROIX, Judge at the Port-au-Prince Court of Appeal and former investigating judge for minors
