Clothes, Chocolate and Children: Realising the Transparency Dividend

How does the UK’s ‘modern slavery’ agenda, as part of a broader political economy of transparency protect human rights and enhance the wellbeing of workers and children?

This research project, funded by the British Academy, explores issues around exploitation and working conditions in supply chains involving UK-based companies, focusing on one commodity (cocoa) and one manufactured good (garments) in four low and middle-income countries (Ghana, Dominican Republic, Bangladesh, Myanmar).

We are tracing the effectiveness of supply chain governance, including provisions brought in under the UK’s Modern Slavery Act, in the context of other development initiatives on sustainable, equitable and ethical supply chains.
