Long Abstract: This manual is for programme managers, administrators and researchers in national and international institutions, governmental and non-governmental agencies and organizations which need accurate and detailed research in order to understand the nature of child labour problems in preparation for programme intervention. The Rapid Assessment method is intended to provide relevant information relatively quickly and cheaply within small, clearly defined geographical areas, for example small individual communities, towns, villages, urban core. It is ideally suited for obtaining detailed knowledge of the working and life circumstances of children by means of discussions and interviews. Its scope is therefore limited and local, and it focuses on areas which are known to have substantial concentrations of children involved in activities difficult to identify and quantify. Part I gives an overview of the basic method of Rapid Assessment (RA), of its uses and also its limitations, so that potential users can see whether or not this method might meet their needs. Part II guides the reader through the RA process topic by topic, step by step. Part III addresses some of the issues involved in how to research special populations of child labour, including children in "hidden" occupations. Part IV contains annexes to provide more detailed guidance, through examples, of some of the suggested techniques for use in Rapid Assessment.
