Impact Assessment Part 2f: Findings and recommendations from a scoping study in China

Article | Free | May 18, 2009

This document is relevant to all those involved in monitoring and improving labour conditions in the export garment industry in China, including retailers, agents and suppliers, auditor s, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and trade unions. Unlike the other five case studies, the China study was not a full impact assessment. Rather, it was an evaluation of the feasibility of carrying out such an assessment in the future, and the focus of this document reflects this limited scope. Nevertheless, this report also serves as a succinct overview of some of the key factors that influence labour practices and code implementation in China – including social and political factors, labour law, the nature of supply chains, key characteristics of the workforce, and trade union and civil society influences. As such, we hope that it will be of wider relevance and interest
