Observations, Challenges and Recommendations for Human Rights Governance Designers

A companion to Sizing up the Garment Industry, this paper is informed by both the questions that prompted that paper, and the findings presented in it.

We outline five challenges related to industry structure that we believe governance designers will need to consider as they develop new laws, regulations, collective bargaining systems and other forms of governance for the future of the garment industry.  While the paper primarily focuses on human rights issues, we believe many of the structural issues outlined in the paper have implications for environmental governance as well.
