News vom 03.07.2017

At the Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) Conference in Lyon, France, we organized a session on “Regulating Labour in Global Supply Chains: Institutional and Organizational Influences.” This session was part of a range of further sessions on Global Value Chains and Regulation and Governance – which represent two major interests of the SASE-community.

Following an introduction on our overall research project, three papers from our project were presented in this session. One the one hand, first insights from the management survey in Bangladesh were presented by Steve Frenkel, Kazi Mahmudur Rahman, and Shahidur Rahman. On the other hand first findings from the UK and German cases were presented, giving insights based on our institutional and firm-level analyses (presented by Sarah Ashwin (UK) as well as Elke Schüßler and Nora Lohmeyer (Germany)).

It was great to see the great interest in our project and its result and we were glad to welcome many of our esteemed colleagues working on similar topics to our session: Such interesting and fruitful discussions and constructive feedback!
