SHEFFIELD – A team of researchers from the University of Sheffield, Stanford University and Yale University have launched a project that it says will “reimagine business models and global supply chains to promote fair, equitable labour standards in light of the pandemic”.

Co-funded by Humanity United and the Freedom Fund, the academics have tasked themselves with establishing a series of issue briefs focused on tackling the drivers of labour exploitation, which could help fashion supply chains bounce back from the events of the past year.

The University of Sheffield’s Genevieve LeBaron, who co-leads the project, said: “This project responds to the need for ambitious, research-driven solutions to the root causes of forced labour and overlapping inequalities in global supply chains. We’re delighted to be undertaking this work with colleagues at Stanford and Yale.”
