Globalisation, Labour Standards and Women’s Rights: dilemmas of collective (in) action in an interde

Gender Institute public lecture

Does the ‘social clause’ which attempts to enforce global labour standards through international trade agreements serve the interests of women workers in the traded sector in poor countries? Professor Kabeer will argue that, as exploitative as these jobs may appear to many activists and consumer groups in the north, they represent genuine opportunities for many women workers in the south. Global efforts to impose the social clause may lead to declining employment or the transfer of jobs to the informal economy. The challenge, then, is to find forms of global solidarity which do not penalise those they are intended to support.

Naila Kabeer is professorial fellow at the Institute of Development Studies.
