Ending slavery through boycotts: right or wrong?
From fashion to food, workers are subjected to forced labor in the production of our everyday items. So, what can we do about it? As individuals, changing our shopping choices, even stopping buying certain products altogether can feel like the most effective response. Governments might choose to implement import bans to prevent products tainted with forced labor from reaching their shelves like the recent Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act in the U.S.
But are boycotts and import bans always best – and can we end slavery using these tools?
Tune in for a discussion breaking down this issue with Freedom United, Uyghur activist and forced labor expert Jewher Ilham, and labor rights expert Allison Gill.
