Book Launch—Made in Bangladesh, Cambodia, and Sri Lanka: The Labor Behind the Global Garments and Textiles Industries

July 29, 2014 // 11:00am12:15pm

The garments and textiles sector is one of the world’s oldest export industries. It has often served as the “starter” industry for many countries, especially in Asia. Dr. Saxena’s book, based on original, in-depth research in three different Asian countries, casts light on some of the significant policy and attitudinal shifts that have occurred in this industry. The book also puts the entire garments and textiles sector into the larger context of international trade policy.

Location: 
5th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
 
Event Speakers List: 
  • Sanchita Saxena // Public Policy Scholar
    Executive Director, Institute for South Asia Studies (ISAS) and Director, Chowdhury Center for Bangladesh Studies, University of California at Berkeley
