Claiming connections: a distant world of sweatshops?

Introduction

Unit image

Sweatshops and the exploitation of workers are often linked to the globalised production of ‘big brand’ labels. This unit examines how campaigners have successfully closed the distance between the brands and the sweatshops, while others argue that such production ‘kick starts’ economies into growth benefiting whole communities.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Living in a globalised world (DD205). [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
