The First Lady, Dominique Ouattara, President of the National Oversight Committee for Fight Actions Against Trafficking, Exploitation and Child Labor (CNS), has received a research team
from the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) of Chicago University, on Wednesday, May 17th, 2017, at the Presidential Residence.
During this meeting, the NORC team was represented by Messrs Kareen Kysia and Shanto Sadhu. They were accompanied by Mr. David Mosby, the Head of Political and Economic
Section at the US Embassy in Côte d'Ivoire.
This research and study center of Chicago University  will conduct in the coming months a survey financed by the US Department of Labor on the phenomenon of child labor in cocoa farming
in Côte d'Ivoire.
After having some working sessions with the Ivorian experts and their partners,  the delegation members wanted to exchange with Dominique Ouattara, First Lady and President of the National
Oversight Committee (CNS), on the methodology of the survey in order to make understandable the complexity of this social phenomenon.
During the interview, the First Lady Dominique Ouattara shared her concerns about the way in which the survey is to be carried out. She wishes the survey took into account the
 socio-cultural realities of the country in order to understand the complexity of the phenomenon.
At the end of the audience which lasted about an hour, Mr. David Mosby said: "We had good exchanges with the First Lady on the study we are going to carry out, and we have
 set the parameters for what will be studied. I am confident that this investigation will be a success, "said the head of the Political and Economic Section of the US Embassy.
Finally, Mr. David Mosby concluded by saying that the wife of the Head of State weighs the importance of the fight against the phenomenon of trafficking and the worst forms 
of child labor.
How many children are working in the cocoa fields?

Who are they? Where do they come from? What is the impact of compulsory schooling on the fight against child labor? And so forth.  All these questions must be answered.
