“Beyond the Tip of the Iceberg: Bangladesh’s Forgotten Apparel Workers”– NYU Stern – December 17, 2015

On December 17, 2015 the New York University (NYU) Stern Center for Business and Human Rights published its second study on working conditions and the garment industry in Bangladesh. The study “is the result of a large-scale data analysis of factory data that the Center collected and analyzed from publicly available sources and a field survey conducted in June 2015. The Center’s analysis sheds light on an important, but opaque part of the garment sector: indirect suppliers.”
