June 2019

This briefing presents the findings of a project, led by University of Liverpool in partnership with FLEX and funded by the British Academy with the Department for International Development. The project assessed how transparency in supply chains for chocolate (please see separate cocoa briefing) and clothes can help to protect human rights and the wellbeing of workers in low and middle-income countries. This briefing examines the findings from research into the garment sector in Bangladesh and Myanmar to provide key policy recommendations for businesses and governments on working conditions.
