Eg in my field (workers' rights in global supply chains), there is much more attention to the Bangladesh Accord (a Western multi-stakeholder initiative), than organised labour in Bangladesh, or MNCs' corporate impunity.
Neglecting how we might get our own houses in order, & labour organising/ regulatory capture in Bangladesh
We get boxed into the narrative that we reduce labour repression by interventions "over there"
Even when we consistently find they don't work,
We infer we just need to tinker with the template,
Rather than pursue a radically different response.
"It means they do not directly become responsible for any failure, injustice, or corruption that occurs due to their involvement in a global supply chain"
