All our projects are concerned with two broad areas of workers’ rights and corporate accountability. Our aim is to improve working conditions of vulnerable workers in gobal supply chains such as the ready-made garment export sector and the mobile phone manufacturing sector as well as the coffee and tea plantation sectors.

We educate workers about their labour rights, study working and living conditions, conduct campaigns and convene multi-stakeholder forums to improve employment conditions.

We also hold multinational companies to account for their adverse social and environmental impact on communities and workers, and demand them to adhere to international frameworks such as the ILO Core Conventions, the International Declaration of Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

Our projects have helped to raise awareness of workers on their rights and empowered them to claim their entitlements, helped communities and workers to address their grievances against multinational companies. Our research reports have helped civil society and workers’ organisations to advocate on behalf of their constituencies.
