Is private regulation working? Book launch with Sourcing Journal on May 25
The New Conversations Project and the Sourcing Journal hosted a live launch and debate on Sarosh Kuruvilla's new book, Private Regulation of Labor Standards in Global Supply Chains: Problems, Progress, and Prospects on May 25, 2021.
Sarosh Kuruvilla laid out the book's key findings based on analysis of previously unavailable data about labor practices in global supply chains. Sourcing Journal founder Eddie Hertzman led a debate with panelists--buyers, workers, researchers--about what it means for global labor governance in apparel and other sectors.
