RMI Guest-Seminar with Prof. Dr. Elke Schüßler

RMI Guest-Seminar with Prof. Dr. Elke Schüßler

At a RMI guest seminar Elke Schüßler will present her report, published with various colleagues* in August this year, summarizing the results of the Garment Supply Chain Governance Project. It provides the most up-to-date analysis of lead firms’ current practices and their impact on garment factories and workers in the context of various public and private labour governance initiatives.

The April 2013 Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh, which killed over 1,000 garment workers and injured many more, shocked the world. Since then, lead firms, supplier factories, governments and multiple other stakeholders have sought to improve building safety in Bangladesh and to strengthen the governance of labour standards in garment supply chains.  

Elke Schüßler is Professor of Business Administration and Director of the Institute for Organization at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. Her research deals with societal challenges such as climate change, decent work and digitalization.

RMI Guest Seminars provide a forum for discussing latest findings in research areas matching or complementing those of the Reinhard Mohn Institute of Management at Witten/Herdecke University.

The event is open to anyone interested. Please register by email.
