What Makes a Decent Factory?

factory workers

Sarosh Kuruvilla and Jinsun Bae

Until recently, there has been a lack of data that allowed researchers to distinguish between highly compliant factories and non-compliant ones. Using data from the supply chain of a large retailer, as well as data from other sources, the aim of this project is to examine the drivers behind highly compliant factories, why they differ from non-compliant factories and in what ways. The research for this project is ongoing and carried out by Sarosh Kuruvilla and Jinsun Bae.
