In 2005, the Children’s Rights Project undertook extensive research on children used by adults or other older children to commit crime (CUBAC). The Project undertook this work for Towards the Elimination of the worst forms of Child Labour (TECL), a technical assistance project to the Department of Labour (DoL) and executing agency for the Child Labour Action Programme (CLAP). This executing agency has been adopted by a wide range of South African government departments, such as those responsible for justice, social development, labour, education, safety and security and local government.
